With Easter around the corner, I thought I'd come up with some fun decorations to display around your home or create as special gifts. These are so easy...and there's plenty of time to whip some of these cuties up for your festivities!
fold the 6 x 6 patterned paper in half. Draw a chick shape, making sure that it has a fold at the top. Draw a wing. Cut your pattern and fold the chick body with the pattern facing out.
bend the paper clips for the chick's legs.
poke a hole through the chick so that the eye will be in the same position on both sides. Add a small brown brad on both sides. Use heavy tape to secure the paper clip
I used dimensional dots for the birds wings to add dimension, but I used double sided adhesive for the point so that it's held down.
You may need to bend the paper clip to give the chicks some support. I think they have a "folk" feel to them. Give them as a teacher's gift to display on a desk maybe?
Next we will make a door cone (I am sure there's an actual name for it, but I don't know it. I just know that i have seen them and always wanted to make one). Draw a large curve in the 12 x 12 paper and cut along your line
You can also use them as napkin rings when the holiday. comes to an end
