It’s been a long time since I made these. My first two attempts at a freestyle one fell apart. After that I figured I’d better take a look at the instructions: http://www.thatartistwoman.org/2008/12/how-to-make-holiday-paper-chains.html . I had been only drawing half a tree, which didn’t extend from side to side, when what I needed was a whole tree that did.
I was really just looking for plain white snowmen or trees. It had never occurred to me to dress the garlands up. But the ones on this website, especially the penguins (templates provided) are adorable and I think kids could really have a lot of fun decorating them.
Also found this website https://www.redtedart.com/paper-chain-pop-up-christmas-tree-card-diy/?cn-reloaded=1 showing you how to use the same process to make pop-up tree Christmas cards.
Gotta go! The shortbread needs to come out of the oven.
