Chicken Eggs

We recently went away for a week for some much needed R&R and had the dilemma of getting our beloved little chooks babysat whilst we were away. Fortunately one of the lovely families from our sons school volunteered and I'm not sure who had more fun, the chooks being somewhere new or the boys at the novelty of little docile chooks who lay miniature eggs! As a little token thank you for the boys I made up these little thank you's - each contains 3 chocolate Kinder eggs..........what do you think?

I over wrapped the chocolate box with card stock stamped with the Woodgrain stamp to make it more nest box like. Then I made the chickens (inspired and modified from some punch art by Bonnie) and signs using punches and drew in features with the white gel pen. The wings, head and top of the sign were popped up on Dimensionals. The new a la carte stamp, So Many Thanks, was perfect for the sign, I am loving those a la carte stamps so affordable & versatile. Here's a slightly out of focus close up.

Stamps: Woodgrain & So Many Thanks

  1. Hi Ann, these turned out brilliantly! I love them ;-) and I'm sure the little boys who looked after the chooks will love them too. See you soon, lots of inky hugs from Char xxx
