Design ID #57537
Create this chick from card stock for Easter or spring décor. Finished size: approx. 4.5” tall x 3.5” front to back x 2” side to side. Body is built as lid and base sections (like a box) that fit together. Dimensional details (top crest, beak, legs & feet) are built first, then fit into openings and glued in place. Eyes are given dimension with 3 layers of graded size circles plus center pupil. Wings and upper body shapes are provided with punch hole for small eyelet connection to body sides (also optional shapes without holes). Feet are built for strength with two layers plus triangle leg hole top layer. Extra strength is added to triangular column legs by inserting a cut section of plastic stir straw into leg channel from inside body base. Glue a coin inside front body base section (marked with circles in side tabs) for “ballast”. Includes chest “feather” slots to thread ribbon length for bow (optional extra lower body boxing shape without slots).
