I made a belt!

It's based off World Preschool Mom's paper chain tutorial at http://worldpreschoolmom.blogspot.com/2008/07/stapleless-paper-chains.html. It's supposed to be a learning toy, but I liked the bold, simple colours and thought it'd look nice paired with a black tee.

So I present...



On its own:


It IS made of construction paper, so durability could be an issue, but it's just an experiment and I'd love to try it in different colours, laminate it if possible...

Update!

The durability question has been answered. I wore it to school today, and it got a lot of love (yay!). At the end of the day, it was still intact, with only minor tearing at the front. Definitely good for at least another two wears.

Thanks for reading!

I bet you could use the same shapes in heavy fabric, or fabric with interfacing, to make a durable version.  Or maybe use some kind of plastic?

Very interesting and graphic, I like it.
