Teen to wear bubble gum wrapper dress to prom

An Iowa teen is all bubbly over her one-of-a-kind high school prom dress she made out of gum wrappers.

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.

Rasmuson and her boyfriend began collecting gum wrappers last August. She says she quit counting after 200.

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