Got Eggs?

Yup- aren't these little chicks cute. Just a few last treats for some friends on Easter. 
These need to travel well and far so these little packages of goodness are perfect to fit in my bag.
The chick is a file from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and the "got eggs" is a sentiment from My Creative Time. 

I printed three layers for each chick. The whole chick itself, then just his body with face, and finally the beak. I attached the body to the whole image with foam tape and then glued the beak. 

This is a quick way to get that look of paper piecing without cutting all the tiny parts, especially when you are doing multiples. The pillow envelopes measure 2"x3" just enough room for a few Reese's eggs.

So,  I have one extra chick but no more pillow boxes and I really need 5 treats. Fortunately,  I had to make a stop at Walgreen's last night and saw this mini Ghirardelli package.

For this one, I used the Jaded Blossom Treat Topper Die.  Once I had my paper cut with the die,  I cut that in half and glued it right onto the candy package. The sentiment for this one is from the JB Easter Treats 3 and the grass is from the Spring Dies set. 

Now I have 5 treats for my 5 clients that are traveling with me today. 

Have a crafty day!!

This chick is way to cool! Love the white dots you added. I always seem to be afraid they won't look right and I will have to start over. Happy Easter to you!
