Last weekend we had lots of fun decorating the girl’s bedroom windows with fairy paper chains.

First we traced one of the fairies from the PDF image onto the top edge of a piece of paper .

Then we folded the paper into a concertina and cut out the selected areas, taking care not to cut through the wing joins.
