Any three colours can be used to make this beautiful decorative chain. The number of pieces depends on how long a chain you want to make. 

Take three different shades of decorative paper of slightly different sizes. Here we have taken red, white and blue. To make one fan shaped piece, stack three pieces of the different shades of paper one above the other. The smaller size of paper should be on top.  Make accordion pleats i.e small pleats of equal width at equal distance. Hold the pleated papers together and staple in the center. Make a number of fan shaped pieces in the same manner and keep aside two of them.  Join the remaining pieces together with glue to form a chain. 

The two pieces kept aside can be used as the end pieces. Stick the adjacent sides together with glue to make a semi circle as shown in figure. 

The same chain can be pulled into a circle to form a decorative star design. The ends of the fan shaped pieces which forms the inner layer of the circle can be glued together to form the design as shown in figure. Five fan shaped pieces are needed to form a small star shaped design.
