Easter Cuties

Wow, I've been gone such a long time I hardly even know how to post LOL.
This is nothing new to most of you but I had to try making a little chick out of the Mini Milk Carton Die Cut (117310) for the Big Shot shown in the Occasions Mini Catalog on page 23. This was really so easy to do. All you need is the Mini Milk Carton Die for the base. You cut off one of the edges and the tab on the side, so when you put it together you have an opening at the top to put lots of "goodies" in. (did you notice the chocolate eggs?) I used the Scallop Oval punch for his comb on the top of his head, the scallop circle punch for the wings, the 3/4" square punch for his beak, the 3/4" circle punch for the white of his eyes, and the 1/2" punch for the black pupils. The Modern Label punch was used for his feet (just punch and cut in half). I had trouble getting the ribbon handle to be less than wimpy, so I cut a very thin piece of cardstock and attached the ribbon to the cardstock before I attached it to the "basket". I keep saying "his", but I don't think "he " would be very happy with a bow on his head, so in your mind, change all my "his" or "him" to "she" and "her".
Isn't she sweet? Try making your own and send me a link to see what you have done.
