Chickens & Eggs


This is Anja. I've made a different kind of project today. My mother has a coop full of chicken at her small farm. And sometimes she gives eggs to someone as a small gift. And that's how I got and idea for using one of the new dies. I decorated a box for eggs.

For this project I used:
- Cottage Cutz die (Chicken & Coop),
- Distress Inks (Barn Door, Fired Brick, Wild Honey, Aged Mahogany, Tea Dye, Pumice Stone, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Black Soot),
- white card stock for die cuts,
- scissors,
- black pen,
- black brush pen,
- paper glue,
- corner punch.

First I cut and colored the chickens and the coop. I used black pen for the eyes.

Then I measured the paper for the box. I made two 2,5x8cm strips and one 7x8 cm rectangle. I rounded the corners with the punch. I colored the edges from lighter to darker colors.

Then I first decorated the box and then glued the chickens on top of it. I used brush marker to write the words.

And this is my finished egg box.

Have a nice Sunday and see you again next week.

what a creative and unique idea for using this die. We buy eggs from a friend who also has chickens on his farm. I may just decorate on of the cartons when we give it back to him.

What a lovely idea. Great job! I think that the recipients are going to use the eggs and keep the fun boxes to use for next time :-)
