Paper chain garland
What you will need:
* Paper chain garland pdf from Kip & Fig
* Adobe Reader (available for free from www.adobe.com) and a printer
* A4 paper
* Scissors or scalpel and ruler
* Glue - Pritt stick or PVA works perfectly
Print off the page in the pdf with the paper chain pattern.
Trim away the outside border in all directions - we have put guidelines on the sheet, so follow these.
Cut into strips - again follow the guidelines on the sheet.
Bend the first strip into a circle, dab with glue to secure.
Thread the next strip through.
Bend into a circle shape and use a dot of glue to secure.
Then repeat the last step until your chain is the length you want.
Don't forget once you've bought the pdf it's yours to print off as many times as you like!
When your garland gets a bit too dusty and is beyond all hope of rescue (it happens in our house at any rate), or you need to cheer up a friend - just get printing.
Going to a dinner party? We think it would make a fun gift for your host - and be there next day to smile at while they are tackling all the dishes!
