Gum wrapper chains:

A friend tried to teach me how to make these, but for some reason I never able to master it. I knew how to make the soda can tab chains, but there was no way I could've drank that much soda to make a decent length of chain..

My mother used to (hell, still does!) chew an obscene amount of gum (Wrigley's Double Mint!) so my best friend and I used to make chains a mile long! It was our favorite rainy day activity. Thanks for pulling that memory out of my mental Rolodex. ;-)

We made pounds of them too. Useless craft really but hours of wasted time success!!

I can sort of admire the workmanship that went into making the chains, but I can't figure out what you're supposed to do with them once they are finished?

All: You wouldn't believe some of the lengths of chain I saw in the image results. Some of them must've been 500 feet long. I can't afford to spend that much for 500 feet of gum wrappers, it'd be, like, $5000
