Today I’m sharing with you how to make a Flower Chain Window Decoration. This idea came about yesterday when I was sitting at my desk daydreaming! I pulled out a piece of printer paper and folded it up quite thick so I could try out my new craft Scissors. I doodled on a flower shape and cut around it… then before my eyes, a lovely, pretty flower chain emerged instantly putting a smile on my face on this gloomy January Day. That was it! I couldn’t stop.

Here’s how to make a Flower Chain Window Decoration:
All you need is some white paper ( I used A4 printer paper)
Let’s make it:
Start by folding the paper lengthways. Then fold it over another two times, creasing the fold as you go along. Your folded strip should be about 21cm x 4cm.
For the template, draw a flower shape on the card, then cut it out. Make sure the flower is slightly bigger than the 4cm folded paper strip.
Using your template, draw flowers on the strip.
Cut the flowers out using sharp scissors, but make sure you leave the bit that overlaps the strip attached on both sides.
Open your flower chain out.
Tape chains together using clear tape to make different lengths.
Stick your chain up using blue tack.
