Card and Chick by Christine

Today we have Christine showcasing her talents with us…
I love making Easter projects and as soon as I saw the Chick Candy Dispenser, I knew that I just had to cut it out.
I followed Lori’s instructions here on her YouTube Channel to put it together and then added a few of my own embellishments.  Don’t you just love googly eyes?  I think that they add so much personality to my little chick.
The front of the box opens up to reveal your treat of choice.  I had just picked up these yummy Hershey’s Kisses in Easter colors. The front will close and then you carry the box around by the handle at the top.
I added the feathers on the back of the box.  I had to use some really good glue to get them to stick but once they were dry everything was fine. I used orange glitter paper on the beak and the feet.  Sometimes, those little details can really make a project pop!
You can’t have a treat box without a card, can you?  So I looked through Lori’s card files and found this one which I think is perfect.  It gave me a way to incorporate the cardstock that I used on the chick into the card so everything is matching!!  I love how simple it is too.

And since it was so easy to cut out this card, I decided to make a matching envelope.  Again, I used the same yellow cardstock to cut it out.   What fun to have a bright yellow envelope.  I used the fancy envelope.  I love the beautiful flap.  Because I wanted to dress it up even more, I cut out a mat for my flap.  If you want to learn how I did that, please stop by my blog and I will show you how.  It’s really easy!

Lori hello ,
I’m having difficulty riding your shape bunny candy dispenser. You have tutorial? The front of the box appears to be improperly seated

This turned out super cute Christine! Love the chick cut from the yellow polka-dot paper. Lori really knocked it out of the park with this darling cutting file. Seeing your candy made me realize I have yet to start buying stuff of Easter baskets. Thanks for the cute reminder. 😉
