My blog's shop is divided into 3 parts; paper and scrapbooking supplies,  crafty kids (offering variety of beautiful crafty kits and products designed for children) and sewing and patchwork supplies.

To make this card you will need:

  • White card paper (15 x 30cm)
  • Light green card paper (15 x 15cm)
  • Dark green card paper (15 x 11 cm)
  • Light brown card paper (apprx. 15 x 15 cm)
  • Piece of yellow card paper - chick
  • various other colours card paper- eggs
  • Brad
  • White gel pen
  • Double sided tape
  • Craft foam pads (I used Stix 2mm thick) 


Take white card 15cm x 30cm and fold it in half. Take light green card paper (size 15cm x 15cm) and attach it to the white card using double sided tape. Take the dark green paper and cut out uneven triangles along the top line, then attach it to the light green card using double sided tape. Take yellow card paper and cut 2 circles (one smaller and one bigger) and attach them to the middle of the card (the smaller one above the bigger one and slightly overlapping) using double sided tape; that's the chick done. Cut a small triangle from a red card paper and attach it to the chick as a beak. Draw chick's eye with a black or brown pen. Then take a brown card paper and cut out upper and lower half of an egg. Then cut out uneven triangles on both halves of the egg. Using white gel pen (or any other colour of your choice) draw various shapes on the egg as decoration. Join the 2 halves of the egg together using a brad. Then attach the egg to the card over the chick using foam pads. Attach the foam pads to the lower half of the egg only. Cut out small eggs from cards of various colours and attach them to the dark green card using foam pads.

If you do not want to make this as a greeting card but only as a decoration, just don't use the white card 15 x 30 cm.
