    Thanks, --witch. I go through a 15 pack a week, usually. I get wrapper contributions from friends and family as well.

    Thanks. I'll try to get some more added. I've kind of slacked off on this lately. As the weather gets worse, I'm sure I'll have more opportunities for inside activities like this.

    Wow. That's amazing! I can never find gum with good metalic foil wrappers, though... Do you know some good gum brands that are avaliable in Canada with foil wrappers?

    Thanks. I'm not sure what is available in Canada. I don't get up that way very often. I would imagine that you have Extra, Juicy Fruit, and Doublemint. These are all Wrigley's and are sold world wide. The new "5" gum is also wrapped in foil and comes in various colors, but the gum is more expensive. Carefree has foil wrappers, but has smooth edges rather than the serrated ones found on Wrigley's. Most of the Wrigley's I see around here come in cellophane wrapped cardboard. The 15 packs for Wrigley's all seem to be going to the new package similar to the new "5" gum. The sticks are still wrapped in foil, but the outer wrap is wider, thinner, cardboard, and wrapped in cellophane (I really don't like cellophane).

    Thanks, louie_gee_gee! Each one takes about a couple of hours to actually make. I usually do this while watching TV at night. I've been doing this for over a year now so they tend to accumulate.

    For the swing, it takes at least 10 pieces. It's good to have an extra piece, so plan on 11 for the swing. Just follow the 'ible for that one.

    I haven't written any 'ibles on the slide or monkey bars. The slide is probably around 20 pieces, the monkey bars about 13.
