My little sister’s birthday is today. At 23 she’s not so little anymore, but I still will always think of her as a petite princess lost in the crazy world. (She’s pretty much a princess.)
Anyhow, Princess Ashton loves gum. So for this birthday I supplemented some of my favorite beauty supplies with a creative throwback from my days at summer camp. It’s really easy to put together and adds that special “I love you” flare I like to include in gifts that need a handmade touch.
You just need Big League Chew and your favorite flavor of stick gum. I like Juicy Fruit, but you can use any flavor.
Grab a marble sized chunk of Big League and mold it into a ball. Place the ball at one end of the unwrapped stick gum.
Roll up the stick gum keeping it tight without ripping it. If your gum seems a bit stiff, you can hold it between your palms for about 5-10 seconds to make it more malleable.
Use the heat from your hands to keep everything intact. I like to re-wrap each roll up in the original wrapper to minimize waste.
That’s it! It’s really that easy!
I got this cute kitty container at Target in the snack container section. Worse case scenario, a snack baggy ziplock keeps the gum super fresh.
