snazzy wrapper chain made from newspaper comics can be used to make all sorts or nifty things
Depending on what you are making with your chain it might take more time. You can make all sorts of things out of your wrapper chain (such as clutches, bracelets, and necklaces). I used newspaper instead of a wrapper but you can make them out of virtually anything thats flat (such as magazines, potato chip bags, catalogs, gum wrappers, anything colorful and pretty to you).
