Teen Makes Prom Dress Out of Garbage

This dress might be made out of trash -- but it's not trashy!

A resourceful Iowa teen will attend her junior prom wearing a creation made almost entirely out of gum wrappers. Elizabeth Rasmuson created her dress (and her date's vest) using only Wrigley's 5 Gum wrappers. The high-school junior says that she was inspired to make her dress after she heard that someone had made a dress out of duct tape.

Rasmuson has been collecting gum wrappers for about six months; she lost count after about 200.

Nothing new. Every year some girl makes a prom dress out of something; gum wrappers bubble wrap, etc.
