She says she stopped counting after about 200. She made a dress for herself and a vest for her boyfriend for the upcoming prom in Garner, Iowa.

Rasmuson says she heard about somebody making a dress out of duct tape. She thought it would be cool to use gum wrappers. She and her friends started collecting wrappers in August for a dress.
