Easter Chicks Decor

Created this Easter Chicks decoration using some recycled items: cotton balls, pink egg carton & cherry tomato plastic carton. Used a yellow powder (have had it for long time and the brand name is not on the pkg) to color 2 cotton balls for each of the 3 Easter Chicks. Cut pink egg carton to make the egg shell for each. Punched paper for each. Fussy cut with scissors beaks for each. Arranged the 3 Easter Chicks in a cherry tomato plastic carton with some Easter grass. Stamped the Hero Arts sentiment and heat embossed clear embossing powder on the sentiment. Used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles to make the sentiment tag. Embossed the sentiment tag base using Swiss Dots embossing folder. Attached the sentiment tag using yellow, metal button brads.
