Hey crafster kids, I'm new to the board, although I have been lurking for a while. Let me first say, awesome site, and the community is really what makes it awesome, not the just the beautiful things you guys create. Although, that's also awesome  Grin(stops saying awesome). Anyhow... now that I've rambled sufficiently. An old friend of the family, who is sadly incarcerated at the moment  Undecided, sent me this box for my birthday. It's made with gum wrappers that have been folded and weaved together, it's pretty cool. It smells like mint and cigarettes though! Kiss, but I thought you all might enjoy it... sorry for the crappy pictures... my webcam is older than sin.

At my lemonade stand I used to give the first glass away free and charge five dollars for the second glass... the refill contained the antidote.

That is  AWESOME (hehehe, couldn't resist) it really is .
Well...Now I know what to do with the gum chain we have going on here.  And all the foil innards we've saved in a box. We can turn them into a box to save more wrappers ! lol.  Now to figure out how they made it into a box.  hmmmmmm

Woah!  I saw one of these at a vintage store in San Francisco and thought it was a one-of-a-kind thing.  These are trippy.

That's very pretty!

Sort of off-topic, but my uncle sent me a card once when he was in prison.  It was hand drawn by a fellow inmate, and it had a little pink bear sitting in the clouds with a rainbow in the background.

Huh!!!!

It made me laugh to think of some tough, tattooed prisioner sitting at a table with his pencil crayons. Drawing pink teddy bears.  And rainbows.

This is a form of what I've seen refered to as "prision art" (not meaning to offend!)...and can be highly collectable! I saw quite a bit of it when I lived in New Mexico and have always been really impressed by it. I've seen picture frames, boxes, wallets...just about anything...made of of the same technique.

Oh my. That is simply amazing!

How did you connect the different wrapper chains into a box?

And how did you make the base? Is it made of gum wrappers as well?
