Little packets from amazon. Lick and stick.

I make paper changes with my dc's every year I buy thick Christmas wrapping paper and cut it to size.

Little multicolour packs from either Hobbycraft or Yelloqmoon company which have adhesive tabs that you peel off & stick. Simple & easy for my dc to do on a miserable afternoon.

Use up old scraps of wrapping paper, just cut to size - really easy.

Bought a lovely pack in homebargains 2 nights ago! I think they were 69p.

Dd produces a massive number of art works over the year. We save the special ones. With her full permission, I cut some of the ones that would otherwise end upon the recycling into strips and dd makes them into paper chains. She loves them and last year stayed up till April!

I think dd1 is old enough to make some paperchains with this year, so I'm watching with interest.

Where do you display your paperchains?
