Hi lovelies! Lately, chewing gum has been a necessity for me. I have it on me at all times. I quit smoking two months ago, so whenever I get stressed or bored or anything that would normally trigger smoking, I chew a piece of gum until the craving subsides. We do a lot of little trips during the summer, so needless to say Juicy Fruit's new gum varieties have been my saving grace.
You see, I just flew into California this morning, and my trusty Juicy Fruit gum nixed my anxiety on the plane! I wanted to do something fun with upcycling the wrapper/container, so I thought what better way to remember your summer travels than to reuse the packaging for something you'll look at all year long!
First, let's make a cute little magnet. You'll need:
- A magnet (I used the cheapo ones that come on the cover of the phone book, any freebie one will work great!)
- Mod podge
- Foam brush
- Juicy Fruit Bubble Gum wrapper
Cut out the logo to the size you want, and apply a good layer of mod podge to the back. Stick it on the magnet, and coat the top of it with more mod podge. Let dry thoroughly.
Cut out your new magnet from the old one.
Stick it up!
Now let's make a pencil cup! You'll need:
- Washi tape
- Juicy Fruit Fruit Chews container
This one is pretty straightforward - peel off the wrapper from the container, and add colorful (or sparkly!) washi tape around the container. Add pens/pencils and you're done!
This is a great way to upcycle items that bring you fond memories of your summer!
