The paper chain, minimal work for great aesthetic payoff! I made this adorable rainbow themed chain for my baby girl's first birthday.
Instead of paper, I used pre-cut cardstock. I liked building with this for a few reasons:
It's pre-cut in perfect size strips (Time saver!)
It's textured - for added visual detail
It's double sided - so the chain is aesthetically pleasing from all sides
It's heavier - making it more of a fixture rather than a flimsy paper chain. (Great for outdoor parties!)
It handles staples really well (super quick assembly.)
