Get Festive With DIY Paper Chains

We found our Christmas spirit by making strings and strings of different sized paper chains last week to hang in the window of our boutique in Stoke Newington.  Our colour theme was influenced by creating a back drop for the long awaited arrival of a new collection from a newly launched designer in Denmark called Size Small.  The most directional pieces of their collection have been made in grey marl with a touch of silver lame and are the coolest contemporary party wear for kids this Christmas.  You will be able to check their new collection out on-line later this week.  I sent a sneaky preview to one of our most loved customers and stylists as soon as the collection arrived.  Sophie snapped up an ice dance jumpsuit for her daughter..

The collection looks great in our window displayed amongst our paper chains made from our signature blk and white stripped candy paper bags that we use for gift wrapping, retro inspired printed wrapping paper from Rice and recycled bubble wrap that takes on a vibrant pink hue from our pink fluroscent tube window lighting.

Just in case you have forgotten how easy it is all you need are strips of paper that you wrap around into bracelets and staple them together.  Mix lots together for dramatic effect and experiment with combining different sizes, textures and colours together.  The links of our biggest paper chains are almost 30 cm.  Its a really fun thing to do with kids especially if everyone gets to pick their own paper and then mix in some recycled materials too.
