  • You obtain one such folded piece.

Step 3:

Repeat STEP 2 to get several such pieces.

Step 4:

  • Take two ends of a piece and insert it in the flaps of another piece.

Step 5:

  • Join the first end of the chain to its rear end to get a closed paper chain.

The vase is ready! It can be used as a pen/pencil holder!
