Paper Scraps

I was waiting for these to dry........

saw a bunch of paper scraps that I just couldn’t throw away......

so I cut them into strips and added some extra paper so I had 25 strips total. You know where I’m going with this right? I’m keeping it old school…..a countdown to Christmas chain? I remember making one of these when I was in elementary school.

I bagged the strips of paper up with markers and glitter glue and headed over to watch my friends little girl who by the way is also my flower girl :o)
We got the markers and glitter glue and went to town. She drew pictures of all things Christmas themed. I turned our Christmas project into a little math lesson as we counted to 25 and talked about subtraction.

After we were all done we hung the Christmas chain on the tree in her bed room and read a Christmas bedtime story. I know, I know, I skipped a holiday ;o)

I still had a few odd shaped paper scraps left so I got out the
fancy scissors and yet again the glitter glue and made some gift tags!


  1. Great project for the children this time of the year. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Neat ideas, girl! Really love those tags. I'm gonna have to get some of that glitter glue.
