Chick it out!

Yellow-bird-all

I have a little more Easter fun to share with you today!  I love putting together little treat containers for the holidays, and when I found pastel coloured candy corn at Bulk Barn, I knew I had to pull something together.  Last year, I worked on a fun, bunny take out container, so this year, I thought it would be fun to create a chick!

Now, I cannot tell you how easy these are to make.  In fact, if you take the cover by itself, you could have fun packaging in Easter-themed colours in less than 3 minutes each!  Really!  Chick it out! 😉

Step 1

Start by cutting a strip of paper that is 12″ x 4″ wide.  I used DCVW’s Bohemian Sunrise stack for this one – it has all sorts of great colours for Easter!
Oh, and you can actually take the 4″ width and change that to match any little plastic bag that you would like to use for your treats! If you would like, cut a curve on one end (I just did this free hand).

Lay your strip on the scoring board with the curved end on the far end of your board.  Score at 4 1/2″, 5 1/2″, 10″.  Use your scoring tool to firm up all your folds.

Step 2

Turn over your paper to the wring side, and line up the top of your treat bag with the non- curved edge. Staple in place. Don’t worry about seeing the staples as they will get covered in the next step.

Step 3

This is the easiest step! Simply fold your packaging around the treat back, pulling the curved edge up on over top of the staples.

Step 4

Use a small strip or piece of adhesive to hold the flap down.  I use the Tombow adhesive because even though it hold really well, the small piece will release when pulled up without ripping the paper part.

Step 5

Have fun embellishing your packaging!  I turned them into chicks with some simple shapes cut from some orange patterned paper, and then adding some little wings (they actually look really cute without the wings too). I also decided to add some fun May Arts ribbon to a few!

All in all, I think these cute little chicks will be a fun Easter treat! Hopefully they inspire you to get crafty!

    • Isn’t that the truth MJ! There are so many great paper crafts out there, but it’s a bit disheartening when I find out I need a particular machine and cut file to make them! Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
