Easter Chick Table Decoration

When I sat down in my scrapbooking room to create an Easter Craft, my mind began to swirl with creation. This cute little chick emerged in a flash. Super easy to make and my kids love it. I think you will enjoy this idea too.


Cricut Cartridge Simply Charmed

Cut 2 each of the following at 5 inches; Chick, Chick Layer 2.

Cut 1 - 9 inch Rainbow Layer 3


Black Pen

My ATG Pink Tape Gun

 Make sure to cut all the parts of the Chick. Before putting all parts on the chick, you must make sure to line up the body back with the front. The back needs to be facing the same direction as the front. Now place all the parts on the chick.

Cut a strip of paper (cardstock) 1 1/2 in wide by 5 in long. Then use something to make a crease at the ends about 1 1/2 in from the edge. Attach one folded end to the front of the chick at the bottom inside. See the photos below. Glue the top of the head together.

Now cut the cloud from Rainbow Layer 3.

Set your cute little chick on the cloud. Lovely little center piece.

Happy Creative Day!!

March Updates

Seems like life has thrown it's wrench to the workings of our family lately. Since I last posted, my family has gotten bad chest and sinus colds that lasted two  and a half weeks then came back. My precious children are getting better as of the last couple of days. In all this I have not gotten sick. Also, Girl Scout season has been full swing. I was the cookie mom for our troop. Talk about a ton of cookies that were at my home. We all are glad the cookie season has just wrapped up at of last weekend. My hope is to have something fun posted for Easter which is just right around the corner. Thanks for following and sorry for the large gap in postings. Enjoy the projects that have been posted.
