Wednesday Wonder-Gum Wrapper Chain to Arm Candy

OK, I used to make gum wrapper chains, fun, everyone did it when I was in school. I just made long chains though.

Not as long as this guy though. Gary Duschl

Damn Gary, that is a lot of gum!

My daughter has a frame that someone made her while he was in jail. I think it is most beautiful and quite inventive, considering it is all gum wrappers.

Gum wrapper art is not just Jail house fare any more though.

Oh wow, gum wrapper wear has become ultra chic and very cool. I love this Tootsie roll bag from Nahui Ollin. You have got to check this out. These bags are nice, very nice.

The detailing and finishing on them is wonderful and they are quirky, I like quirky.

I mean seriously folks, this is a nice bag! And way to recycle kids.

Here is the  Junior Mint line, I wonder if it is minty fresh too?
