Modern take on the Classic Paper Chain

There is a nostalgia around paper chains for me.  I can remember sitting at my craft desk as a kid, piecing one together and feeling so satisfied by my accomplishment.  That is why I was so delighted when flipping through the pages of a new book in store, I came across a modern paper chain.  It is like a paper chain for adults!  All the fun of the classic paper chain, but with 100% more style.

Modern Paper Craft by Margaret Van Sicklen

The modern paper chain is just one of many fun projects in the new book Modern Paper Craft by Margaret Van Sicklen.  She has divided the book into 5 great sections: folding, cutting, scoring, pleating and recycling.  It has a little bit of everything for a paper fan.  Clear and concise diagrams make projects easy to follow.  In addition, it may sound silly, but a big bonus for the book is that it is spiral bound!  There is nothing more frustrating than trying to follow along with a book that keeps flying shut!

So my suggestion, as spring approaches, dress it up (whatever it may be) with a stylish paper chain.  Grab a book, get inspired and get a bit of colour and craft happening!
