Size when constructed as shown: • H: 150mm • W: 170mm
Instructions: 1. Select an Easter chick card and lay it out flat. Fold along the dotted line.
2. Next decorate the face to give the chick a character. Draw large eyes on white paper, cut out and glue into position. For the beak simply cut a triangle of white or yellow paper.
3. Now decorate the body: If you intend to add a message onto the body, either write it on coloured paper or print it out using your IT skills, cut it out and glue into position. Use a few sequins to add sparkle. Or cut some coloured paper into random triangular shapes. Arrange and glue some of the mixed pieces onto the body of the chick creating texture. Or glue some yellow feathers onto the body of the chick adding texture. The face can be given character by adding glittery cheeks, eyelashes and a hat! Attitude can be given to the chick by curling the wing around to just under the beak. Glue into position with strong glue - hold for a few minutes to secure.
4. Add feet: Add feet to the base of the card. Simply cut out two paper feet and glue into position.
