Last year I found this tin at CVS but forgot to use it for Easter. I created this for my son and was going to fill it with candy but I am not a huge fan of candy so I have another crafty idea for the will have to wait and see what that will be ;-)
I cut the egg from Stretch Your Imagination cart at 7". Then I dry embossed it with Cuttlebug border embossing folders. It turned out really cute and I almost didn't want to cover it.
The 2" chick was cut from Create A Critter, I used Glue Dots pop up to add dimension between the layers. Since I cut this with my Imagine, I chose the yellow I wanted the chick to be and had the Imagine print the color yellow on the chicks top layer, then cut it. For the bottom layer, I chose to only cut it using white paper, I used my Copic markers to fill in the eyes, legs and feet with black. I used my yellow Copic marker to fill in the rest. The yellows match - no one would know how I did this just by looking at it. Chick looked very plain so I decided to dry emboss him. I also added some flock to his tummy.
Added a ribbon and bow, Voila, done! Now I have to make one for my daughter!
