Teen to wear bubble gum wrapper dress to prom

GARNER, IA Elizabeth Rasmuson made her dress -- and matching vest for her date -- out of blue and white wrappers from Wrigley's "5 gum."

The high school junior says she got the idea after hearing about someone making a dress out of duct tape. She and her boyfriend began collecting gum wrappers last August. Rasmuson says she quit counting after 200.

Since the wrappers break easily, Rasmuson finished her dress with a vinyl top coat.
