Christmas in July - Paper Chain Tutorial

Merry Christmas everyone!
"What's that?" you ask? "Isn't this only July?"
Well yes it is. But all last week we were celebrating Christmas in July - highlighting our new holiday paper collection "Festive".

I had so much fun celebrating, that I couldn't stop! So I went a little crazy and created a "festive" paper chain. And because I was having so much fun with that, I made a video tutorial to help you get in the Christmas-in-July-spirit!

  1. I like the silent movie style of the tutorial. Great for those times when you want the instructions but have to keep the volume down...like when you're at a crop.

  2. I love that it's pretty glitter contained (as much as one can contain glitter) and perfect for kids on a snowy/bad weather day!

  15. This Festive paper is gorgeous and looks wonderful mixed and matched on your paper chain. I can't imagine how much time and how many staples you went through, but it was worth it!
