Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great holiday project for my kids group. They were excited to create something for the holidays that they could take home. It was easily teachable and inexpensive to do.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn’t work as advertised My granddaughters love paper chains to count down to important events (such as birthdays). I have been cutting colored paper strips and stapling them. I thought self stick pre-cut strips was a godsend- the girls could have more involvement in the process The strips don’t stay stuck. I expected them to be self stick ie post it pads. You have to wet the end like an envelope but there isn’t enough glue I ended up putting tape on most of the links.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fun and pure simplicity loved the pre-cut paper chain strips! Vibrant colors, no need for little ones to use scissors if they're not ready for them, and there's little sticky tabs that make it soooo easy for even the very young to assemble!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So-so We used the precut paper strips to create long paper chains. They looked fabulous in our community center. Very festive. The product states they are gummed. Though, there is something on the edge of each strip it is not useful at all for securing the paper ring and creating long chains. We used glue sticks to do the task and it was sufficient. I will probably buy this again if I cannot find precut strips elsewhere. Why only 3 stars? Because, the description should reflect the product truthfully. Or the product should reflect the description.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty, but just ok quality Got these for a 2nd grade class holiday activity. The kids enjoyed making them and the papers are brightly colored and pretty. But they had to use glue stick because a good number of the chains had no adhesive. The type of glue that you lick like an envelope was on some, but not all and it was not very effective if you tried to use it. If you know going in you'll need glue, these are probably a good purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Was looking for a shortcut Thought it would be a cheater way to quickly lick and stick. Even after holding pressure on a bit before moving on to the next one, when we were done, many came undone. Had to use tape the old days...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as advertised. I returned them as they had NO sticky gum factor whatsoever. When I called the customer service line I was told that maybe they were 'old.' You could see where the gummy adhesive should have been.They did send me a pre-paid return address label for shipping them back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The grandkids loved it. The older kids did better with one. Younger kids tended to lick the glue too much. We ended up using glue sticks for the younger kids.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless product in every way! The quality of this product was extremely poor and it was a total waste of money. When the ends were placed together as per the instructions, they didn't stick at all. Even if I taped them together, they looked tacky and unacceptable. Not worth the money I paid for them. They were useless in every way. Now I'm stuck with these strips of useless paper. Thank goodness I brought other activities from my event or else I would have been embarrassed. Avoid this purchase at all costs.

How long is the chain when you use 500? I'm not using for tree, want to use in a conference room and hang from the ceiling.

Asked by: Kaismiles
500 pieces assembled with about 1/4 overlay where they are adhered together will give you a chain approximately 75 feet long.
