Easter Chick Treat Holder

Hey Stampers, 

yet another Easter post today !! I still have a couple left, so I will be posting them tomorrow and Saturday. It seems like Easter this year snuck up on me ... I don't really like it so much when its in March - not very spring like at ALL here where I live !! My project today is a SUPER adorable treat holder that I made using the Ovals Collection Framelits and some punch art ! I got the idea for the holder from the super talented Angie Kennedy-Juda. You can find her video on how to make it right here if your interested. But its super easy ! Take a look !

Cute, right ? I am LOVING these !! I am going to put them on my Easter table like little place card holders. The holder itself uses the largest Oval Framelit, the scalloped one, and I cut it out of Lucky Limeade cardstock. I scored the oval on my Simply Scored tool at 2-1/8" & 3" on the long side. Then the next size down oval I cut out this great Daffodil Delight and Whisper White chevron pattern from the Parker's Patterns DSP. That patten looks just like an Easter Egg to me !! I adhered my ovals together and then folded on my score lines. I stamped the funky sentiment from Wacky Wishes in Lucky Limeade ink right above my score line off to the left hand side. I punched the top of my holder with a basic 1/8" hole punch (non SU) and tied a knot in the 1/8" Pumpkin Pie Taffeta Ribbon. So cute !

Next its time for my chick !! The colors I used here are Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie. I needed a Daffodil Delight 1-3/4" Circle along with 2 wings from the Bird Punch. In Pumpkin Pie I needed the largest flower from the Boho Blossoms punch, a Modern Label punch and a tiny strip about 1/4" wide x 2" long. I cut my Boho Blossom so I had 3 little points, and adhered it to the back of the chick's body to act like the little feathers on its head. I used Tombo Mono Glue to adhere all of these small pieces. Then my Modern Label was cut in half, and I tapered in the sides to look mote like little birdy feet. Adorable !! I folded my little strip in half and cut out a triangle for his beak. Then I adhered the wings with Dimensionals, added 2 little eyes with my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker and he was all done !! A couple of Dimensionals popped him off of the holder. I just love how adorable this turned out !! I put a half size Kit Kat bar in side (this hold a nice sized treat) and now they are ready for my Easter dinner table !! Love it !!

Well, thats mu cute Easter treat today. They are so quick to make and you be easy to do for any occasion !! Thanks a lot for stopping by today and Happy Stamping !!
