Paper Chains

Do you remember making paper chains as a child?  I spent some formative time in the UK as a kid and we made paper chains there ALL the time.  On any and every occasion we would get out the paper strips and chain up.

Here in our house we have a mountain of scrapbooking papers, as pretty as the are, they are not being used.  So bring on the paper chains.  We cut them into 6 x 1 1/2 inch strips, the kids had a stapler each and raced to see who could make the longest chain fastest.
It was fun and no-one was accidentally stapled
(which was a great concern of mine given the frenzy of activity.)

Perfect decorations for Master B's birthday.
