Neat way to make a paper garland for your tree without tape or glue.
Approximate Time: 1 hour
Make a pattern similar to the one in the photo, about 2 1/2 by 1 inch. Trace this in the corner where there are two folds. Cut out
Unfold and refold in half horizontally. Slip one end through the opening of another one which is folded in half, then unfold and bring the two openings together. Go on to the next one and continue until you have the length you want. I hope the photos will explain it a bit better.
Of course you could increase the size of your pattern to move the project along faster. When you are finished, you will need to tape or glue the last chain. Well it's almost tapeless. Great for young children to put together if someone cuts them out.

Christmas cards can be cut into strips and made into delightful "chains' for your tree. Also I have made chains using red and green paper from old wallpaper books.
There are many ways to count down to Christmas. There are songs about it. Retail has take a cue from the season and transformed it into a list of shopping deals for the holiday season. Each year at church, we take the month of December off from creating crafts about the children's bible stories and make Christmas themed crafts.
Looking for Christmas garlands that cost little or no money? Make a paper chain garland using the funny pages from the newspaper or colorful gloss ads.
