A paper chain is a great way to help children count down the days until a special occasion or a holiday. And who says the paper chain has to be plain!? I made this paper chain for my grandchildren to count down the days till Christmas. I cut 25 paper strips from cardstock measuring 2” X 12”. I punched both side of the strips with the Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch #910, giving the strips an elegant look. I alternated the red and green strips and linked the strips together by stapling them.
