paper chains – another look
I don’t think I can in good conscience call myself a crafter who works with paper unless I add a paper chain or two to the repertoire. It’s been sadly absent from my list of projects.
The layer of corrugated cardboard protecting my work surface caught my attention the other day. I wondered how to integrate that rough chunky texture into the nostalgic paper chain of my childhood.
As far as I can tell, there’s not a fast and easy way to peel cardboard apart to get to that intriguing ridged interior.
But there is a wonderful reward on the other side of that work.
Combined with an assortment of colorful paper courtesy of a couple of corporate reports and a second hand world atlas, these chain links are a distant relation to the construction paper versions I made as a school girl.
Maybe this is the grown up flavor.
I’ll go with that.
Thank you so very much for reading today! I appreciate your company so so so much 🙂
