This black and white image, Candy Wrapper Gum, was donated by the artist, Chris Gunn. Click to read more about Chris.
This gum wrapper is sized to fit the 5 stick packages of chewing gum (like Juicy Fruit, WinterFresh, DoubleMint, Big Red, et cetera).
It says “Happy Valentine’s Day ‘Chews’ The Right” on the front. On the back is a blank for you to fill in “To” and “From”.
There are 6 wrappers per 8 1/2 by 11 inch page. Each wrapper is a different color to help you equalize your ink usage and so that you can give the gum to classes made up of both boys and girls. The colors of the wrappers are red, blue, purple, aqua, green, and gold.
I think these would make nice Visiting Teacher gifts, class handouts, or inactive member gifts.
Printing Suggestions: If you’re having trouble getting the GIF or JPG versions to print the correct size, try the PDF version. Also, printing on coated (glossy or matte) ink jet paper will result in brighter colors and more realistic-looking wrappers.
Here’s a picture of the wrapper completed:
And here’s a related quote from Elder on the value of reminding ourselves to choose the right: “I hope and pray that you great young people of the Church will have the courage to consistently choose the right! Moreover, I suggest that each of you find or create reminders to help you and your loved ones choose the right when a choice is placed before you. There is power in a tie tack, a CTR ring, or a white dress hanging in the closet if we associate them with our desires for purity and righteousness. Even more important than physical reminders is to have the conviction deep down in our hearts to live the kind of life that will cause us to make the right choices, not only for peace and happiness in the world right now, but also for peace and happiness eternally.” (L. Tom Perry, “Choose the Right,” Ensign, Nov. 1993, 66 — the whole article is about using physical reminders to help us make spiritual decisions)
