I have been spoiled for a good portion of the month with 70 plus degree weather! Unfortunately, the temperature dropped down to the low fifties and it is rainy today L (but still unseasonably warm). There is a silver lining to this dark cloud! It is a perfect day to do a craft with the kiddos! Since I KNOW my mother is going to give the girls Easter Baskets, I figured why not make something to go in them that the girls can enjoy and that will last a little longer than the candy! I pulled out my trusty Gazelle and put it to work…
I used a shape from the Fun Time library for the base of the chalkboard. I cut the shape twice; once using chipboard (to give the chalkboard support) and second in chalkboard paper. Both materials cut AWESOME in the Gazelle! For the cute little chick, I used the Chick Peeker 0303 file. It comes with everything you need (wings, beak, eyes and head). However, I wanted to use a stamp for that adorable face J. I opted to cut the chick with white cardstock so it can be colored in.
Since this is a chalkboard, I decided to add a chalk holder under the wings and added a twine ribbon to finish off the project. That is it! A quick and easy project that the kiddos can enjoy on a cold rainy day! Don’t forget to pop over to BossKut for this file and others. Thanks for stopping by, Kenya
*This would also be a fun gift to give to a class or to children in Sunday School J
