Simple Paper Chain

IMG 3080This evening, Miss G and I put together something I loved making as a child… a simple paper chain.  We started with some paper scraps I had left over from a Christmas bunting and used a paper cutter to trim them into neat strips.

IMG 3087Miss G then chose her “special starting paper”, loaded one end with several swipes of a glue stick…

  1. I can’t get over how weird it is that this came to my inbox 7 days late! Now it’s going to seem like I copied you hahaha, but I totally would have thrown credit your way if I had seen this prior to doing ours (I put up my post on Dec 5 but didn’t get this in my inbox until Dec 7). We also did the felt Christmas Tree at the same time! We must be on the same holiday wavelength :D
