This How to Make Gum Wrapper Paper Chains project is suitable for ages 6 to adult.

  1. Choose and print the clip art that you want to use to make your chain.
  2. Cut the printed sheets of clip art into 1" x 2 3/4" pieces.
  3. Fold a piece in half lengthwise it should measure 1/2" X 2 3/4".
  4. Open up the folded piece and fold each side into the center lengthwise - it is now 1/4" X 2 3/4".
  5. Fold the strip in half.
  6. Fold both ends in to the center.
  7. Make a second unit and slip one into the other and you now have the beginning of your chain.

Continue in this manner until you have your chain the desired length.
