Vintage Style Christmas Paper Chain Tutorial

 Today I'm linking up with the Graphics Fairy on Brag Monday.
Go check out the other wonderful links using her images.
I've got a paper chain tutorial and free images to make your own.

 First I used 2 of her antique Christmas images in photoshop to make my own image strips for a paper chain. (I have provided them at the bottom for you to print out)
 I cut the excess paper around the edges off.
 I then glued each paper strip sheet to a sheet of old music so the back would be covered.
 trim the excess music sheet from around the edges and cut out each strip.
 Now simply fold each strip into a circle and tape, staple, or glue the ends together.
It makes a really neat vintage style paper chain.
Below each of the following images are the links to the 4 different paper chain .pdf's


I also want to share with you my newest online workshop...
