Method
Cut the coloured paper into strips. The exact size doesn't matter too much but ours were about 15cm long by 2cm wide

Don't worry too much about cutting to an exact size


Curl the strip into a loop and fix with sticky tape or glue.
Feed another strip through the first loop and curl the strip into a new loop fixing closed with sticky tape or glue.
You should now have two loops joined together
Repeat this process, adding extra loops onto the end of the chain each time until you have your desired length of paper chain.

I love paper chains! I actually design my own patterns on the computer first and print them on card. That way I can have patterned card without having to buy expensive ones. It's great if you've got themed birthday parties! :)
these would look great at Christmas too in festive colours
