Christmas Decorations for a Jems Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to a Jems Blog Hop :-)
Today we are hopping around 8 lovely blogs with a theme of Christmas Decorations.
Before I share todays makes, can I quickly mention that SU! have started their sales! Eeep! With many discounted products and quite a lot of stuff that is now is only "while stocks last". 
So if you've had your eye on anything please do order it in my SHOP, asap ;-)
OK, back to today's makes! Unfortunately we haven't managed yet got our tree up but now I've made this I am excited for when I do ;-) and of course I'll share more photos with you when it actually goes onto the tree! I was inspired, at a home show I visited last weekend, to make a concertina paper chain using the Merry Music DSP. I remember making these at school and making this was a great fun way to occupy myself while sitting in front of the telly for an hour or two this week.
This Merry Music paper is just perfect for making these chains as it's a tiny bit thinner than regular dsp but you could also use any of the regular dsp SU! sells...
Simply cut the dsp into 2cm strips, glue the end at a right angle and fold over each other till it runs out, glue the next strip to make the colour block long as you'd like. For mine I did three sets (6 pieces) of white then two (4 pieces) of black. Repeat until it's long enough to wrap/hang where you want it :-)
And just as a one off with my last few foil snowflakes I made a 3d snowflake, very easy to make and pretty too!
OK, so I hope you liked my homemade Christmas decorations. Next you're going to hop and see what delights Sarah has made for you! Thanks for looking today :-)
