A passion for chewing gum - a habit, perhaps not the most aesthetic, but common. And let some chewing gum is really the strength (in theory) to protect teeth from decay, it does not alter the properties of their ugly stick to the most unsuitable surfaces such as hair, pockets of jeans or a new favorite shoe sole. But why not pay less unpleasant property for the benefit and, for example, secured with the help of some gum reminders on the fridge? And if the feeling of disgust can’t commit such idea, the role of used chewing gum may well fulfill the original magnet.
The idea to make an unusual fridge magnets in the form of “used” chewing gum (sight, frankly, not very nice) came up with the young designer from the United States Hillary. The girl remembered the children’s habit of chewing gum sculpture everywhere, wherever she can reach out and decided to share this with all the nostalgia. And since, especially a lot of chewed substance remained under school desks and chairs, the backdrop for a promotional photo served as a stylized leaf notebooks in the student line.
In her shop of hand-made Etsy.com Hillary is selling the original sets of fridge magnets – three pieces each. All of the “chewing gum” are painted in bright, often unnatural colors. In addition, each color is mixed by hand. There is even a beige gum, which glow in the dark. You can also order the “exclusive” either the most incredible colors. Price set of “chewing” magnets - $ 5.
Under each photo of the products designer doesn’t get tired to put the same disclaimer, reminding that every magnet – this is the usual joke-blende, made ??of clay by hand, not with the teeth and saliva. “No chewing gum has been chewed” – Hillary assured.
