Hope you're having a wonderful day whether you're home with your family or out at work. Here in Ontario we are celebrating Family Day so I am home relaxing with my hubby and the kids. My daughter, Molly is a budding paper crafter, so when we saw an adorable little bunny basket that Chris Galbraith had made, she suggested we make an Easter chicken to go with the Easter Bunny. I have to be honest, other than cutting the card stock, Molly did the punching out, gluing together and designing! The 3D beak was totally her idea as well. I was just going to punch out one of the 5 petal flowers and cut one petal off when she took it, snipped a piece off, folded it up and put it on his face. She's a natural I tell ya! Now she wants to make a video!
The recipe for this is really simple - Fancy Favor Box cut from So Saffron for the base, Scallop Circle Bigz Die cut 2 from Daffodil Delight for the body front and back. His eyes are 2 Whisper White 1" circles, 2 Basic Black 3/4" circles and 1 Daffodil Delight 1" circle cut in half for eyelids. The beak and feet are cut from Cajun Craze using the 5 petal flower punch, and his little wings are the birds from the 2-step bird punch. I have to say I think he turned out pretty cute! I'd love to know what you think of him too, so feel free to leave a comment.
Until next time...
