Recycling paper: The Candy Wrapper Chain

Green work, origami, Paper craft, Recycling, Weaving  |  September 6th 2011  |  0 Comment

Happy Family Day! It’s a teensy post today as I am spending this great little holiday with my family!
Welcome to Series 4 – Candy Wrapper Chain #2!
Yes, it is the 2nd installment in this series of simple crafts made with the lovely candy wrapper chains. In the 1st installment, I dressed up a gift with a few lengths of chain. Easy and effective too!
Today’s craft is a decorative lamp shade sleeve that can be slipped on or off your lamp shade whenever you wish to freshen up the look of any lamp.
To make the sleeve, I simply created a removable cone made from a large sheet of newsprint trimmed to fit the shade exactly. I then decorated it with lengths of candy wrapper chain! Find out how to make candy wrapper chains by checking out this great little video tutorial right here. I enlisted my whole family – including my sisters and brother-in-law who were visiting – to help make the chains! Weren’t they sweet to help? We made our chains out of the phone book, but they can be made from virtually any kind of paper.
And see? The sleeve slips off easily, so you can have fun creating a few different ones for a variety of looks and seasons!
1. Using junk mail, or phone book pages, cut out narrow sheets. Mine are 3-3/4″(9.2 cm) wide (this measurement allows me to get 2 strips from 1 phone book page, but I make all my strips this width for consistency’s sake).
1. Using junk mail, or phone book pages, cut out narrow sheets. Mine are 3-3/4″(9.2 cm) wide (this measurement allows me to get 2 strips from 1 phone book page, but I make all my strips this width for consistency’s sake).
2. Fold a strip in half lengthwise.
3. Unfold the strip, and fold the long edges in so that they meet the center fold. Refold in half lengthwise.
4. Fold all your strips in this way.

5. Mark a strip at increments of 3/8″ (1 cm).
6. Clamp several folded strips together using a clip.
7. Make links by cutting through all the folded strips at the marks you made.
8. You’ll get many many links in no time.
Now you have everything you need to make the chains. Here’s the video tutorial that shows how to do that! It’s surprising how long a chain you can make during an hour-long TV show… Have fun!
Making a Frame
For my first project, I cut a slightly larger than plate-sized circle from one of the months of an old astronomy calendar (could not throw it out… could not). I also cut a similar circle from a pizza box. Then I glued those two circles together.
9. To frame my picture, I took a chain.
10. After placing a plate in the middle of my calendar picture, I applied a bead of white PVA glue around the perimeter of the circle. I then placed my chain on the bead of glue using the plate as a guide to keep the chain along a nicely circular path.
11. I trimmed the chain and inserted the end links into each other and glued them in place.
12. I removed the plate, and voilà, a picture framed!
The “framed” astronomy calendar page will decorate the closet door of the boy’s bedroom. I’ll be making a few more of these to create a unique astral door decoration!

For my next project, I cut a circular ring out of a cracker box, and glued two chains to it.

Making a Rosette
I made a few little rosettes as shown in the following photo. And glued those on my ring…
… creating a sweet telephone page candy wrapper chain wreath!
I can imagine adding a few coats of paint to this wreath and framing a round mirror or a simple clock face with it, can’t you? The possibilities never end, do they?
