MERRY CHRISTMAS crafty friends!! For those that celebrate, all of us at Simon Says Stamp hope you have a very blessed and happy holiday today!
Each year we come up with ideas for you to upcycle some of your holiday wrapping paper. Today I’m going to take you back in time to “Gum Chains”. Do you remember making those?
I have figured out a simple recipe to make any size gum chain. My chains are used to create some seriously fun crowns for New Year celebrations. I’ve made a folding instruction sheet that you can use as a guide HERE.
I used 30 pieces for the adult size crown, 32 for larger heads. I also made one using 28 pieces with a bow that can be adjusted for kids. These crowns only require wrapping paper, a paper trimmer, scissors, hole punch, ribbon and a splash of love.
Thank you so much for taking your time away from family and friends to join me on the blog. Enjoy!!
