Default Paper Chain made with gum wrappers

Can someone help me? I am not sure where I saw it. Remember when they use to take gum wrappers and fold them to make a continuous chain out of it. Well I saw where they did this and made them with Stampin Up designer paper. Did anyone else see this. If you did could you please post here the website, blog or picture.

Thank you

Oh boy does this bring back memories! I could show you how to do it but don't ask me to write out the directions. I did find this:

What are you going to use them for??? I think if you used Christmas DP it would be nice garland for the Christmas tree!

Default gum wrapper

What is it? It looks like a paper bracelet. Love the colors - what are they?

Holy Cow! Does this ever bring back memories!!! Everybody made gum wrapper chains. Bracelets, belts, garlands, on and on... It was so unique.. only gum wrappers made good chains. We tried lots of other paper only to be terribly disapointed. Thanks for the walk down memory lane! May God bless, Sandi

How funny! We were at the Doobie Brothers/Chicago concert last night and the lady sitting next to me had a purse that was made out of something similar using the gum wrapper fold. When I was in high school, we used to make the chain to the height of our boyfriends!

I call the chains jail art - my students have been making chains into necklaces with a cross on them (religious art), picture frames (someone stole mine but left the picture - ) and I think I've seen boxes. Clever and enterprising group.

We did the height of our boyfriends way back when too. I remember tearing one apart after a break up! My girlfriend got on one end and I the other and we pulled and pulled...it didn't come apart as easily (or as quickly!) as the relationship!

I've been trying to figure this out myself for some time; googled and searched craftster.org and messed around - the only way I've been able to come up with so far is to make chains the length you want your purse and then "sew" them together with clear fishing line (really more weaving than sewing) to get the purse shape.

Oh my gosh....I made these all the time growing up....you had to have the colored wrappers or it just looked like white paper. I kept making one continuous chain. I wonder if my parents still have it in their attic somewhere.

It would take a long time to make a chain long enough to put on a Christmas tree if you were using gum sized wrappers....maybe if you made the strips larger it would be more feasible. The purse idea sounds cool too.

When I was 10 I had two back surgeries, just a few months apart. The majority of that time was spent confined to the bed or couch. I made one of those chains and we did use it as garland for the Christmas tree! I am sure it is still somewhere with the old decorations.

I still am looking for the blog or maybe it was on here. They had the direction and I think they used it on a scrapbook page or maybe it was a card.
Thanks
Someone emailed me and the bracelet was on the cd from convention last year. I didn't get that one. Does anyone have the cd, do they had instructions.

I so want to make one of these. I need to see it in person and have someone teach a class for me. Now that would be cool wouldn't it. lol
Seriously looking at the instructions makes me confused.

They had various purse styles, made out of M&M wrappers (peanut, peanut butter, crispy rice, etc). I think the clutch size was $600.!!! The sales lady was quite pushy too - "You spend more on purse by Coach, theees eees one of a kind"

Lady, if I had $600 left after hitting the casino, I would be buying more rubbah, not your old paper purse!

Now THAT explains my crowns and dental work! I remember we always wanted that fruit striped gum 'cause the wrappers smelled so good. I can't imagine carrying around a potato chip smelling purse. I'd be looking for onion dip everywhere!

you could pay for your flight to Mexico and buy the purse for what you pay for the one in Vegas
