These cards take forever to make, but I love the end result.  I cut up flyers / junk mail and weave the paper into little chains which I then piece together. Enjoy!

OH! These are cool!  Shocked Do you make the chains the same way you do with bubble gum wrappers? If so, I'll have to try this!

Thanks!  I think my entire grade 10 year was spent making these chains out of starburst candy wrappers... My sister made a dress out of them - long story.

Yup, exactly the same.  Since I made mine from junk mail, I had to cut the paper to size.  I found 2.5" long and .5" wide worked well (the skinnier strips help cut down on the bulk - way too thick otherwise.  I just folded them in half once, and did the rest of the folding the same as with candy wrappers).
