So I guess you could say that I have a pack a day… gum that is… well maybe not an entire pack a day, but at least one every two days. Orbits is my gum of choice, Maui Melon being my all time favorite gum. I know this is starting to sound like an advertisement for the company, but it’s about to get crafty.
I noticed how colorful and interesting their gum packages always are… and so I decided to collect them for a month. This month I at Orange, Mint and Strawberry. I cut up the packages with the designs showing and turned them into some beautiful artwork.
I found this wooden heart cutout at the local thrift store for 25 cents, I took that and decoupaged the gum box cut out squares onto it and then gave it about 4 coats of the mod podge and taaa daaa, trashy art!
You may not chew gum as much as I do, but think about some of the common wrappers that are thrown away each day, what could you turn them into?
