Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 208 – Bunnies/Chicks or Eggs

Kim is hosting today’s challenge, Bunnies, Chicks or Eggs
As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the Bunnies, Chicks or Eggs theme. 208 chicks3

My project was an exploding box for Easter.  I really like these little boxes – complete with a surprise in the centre!   They are very easy to make and need no special dies or equipment to achieve this effect.

My box was made using plain white card and was mat and layered with shades of yellow paper printed from a serif craft artist digikit.  In the centre of the box was a small basket – I have filled it with chicks that I bought in The Works, but you could easily fill it with the small Cadbury mini eggs.  Warning – the mini eggs are not a good idea for small children – some have died after getting them stuck in their throats.208 chicks1




The basket was made using an SVG file that I found and cut out with my scan n cut, but you could use straight card and get the same effect.   I put some shredded paper in the base of the basket for the chicks to sit on…

There were Eggs in the printed paper on the outside of the box, on the inner flaps were pictures of bunnies, and also on the small basket.



Good luck with the challenge everyone!
