Iowan ready for prom with gum wrapper dress
Rasmuson and boyfriend, Jordan Weaver wear a dress and vest made of gum wrappers from Wrigley's "5 gum" in shades of blue and white in Garner, Iowa. They will wearing them at their high school prom on Saturday.
I think that's pretty cool and innovative of this teen. I know she saved her parents some money by not having to purchase/rent a dress for this event.
