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.
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!
