It’s day 6 and Sunday so it’s time for a project. I wanted to take a tradition that a lot of us embraced during school during the Christmas season and a great project for family. Introducing the Memory chain.
Use 12×12 paper and a straight trimmer or rotary cutter to cut out strips measuring 6 inches x 1 inch.
On each strip, write memorable moments from the year, quotes, or song lyrics, the sky is the limit.
Use Clear contact paper to “Laminate” each strip
Using a small hole punch and brads, or a stapler assemble the chain.
Store the extra pieces in a ziplock bag for next year. Or use different colors for each year.
Add links to the chain every year.
Use the chain as a tree decoration or fireplace decoration.
A variation of the project could be that a 25 days of Christmas “Bucket List” a fun family activity for each of the days leading up to Christmas, tear off a piece of the chain to find out what the even it.
Hope you enjoyed this idea/project.
Be back tomorrow with the start to more cards for the week.
