Flowerpot Friday

I hope you are not sick of the little chick.  I filmed a quick video on how to make the flower pot from this post.  

 

After filming the video I started thinking about how I could use the little chick for place cards for Easter dinner.  Here's what I came up with.

Instead of the "Happy Easter"  you could write a name.  Wouldn't this be so cute at each person's place setting?  Here are the measurements so you can make these mini versions.

1. Cut a piece of Cajun Craze card stock 2 1/2" x 5 1/2".

2. Score at 1/2", 2 1/2", 3", 3 1/2".

3. Fold at the 3" score line and measure in 3/8" from either end.

4. Cut from the fold line to the 1/2" score line on both sides.

5.  Fold the bottom folds like a "W" and fold the 1/2" flap down.

6. Wrap ribbon around the lip and the back of the pot and tie a bow.  Insert chick and attach it to the pot with a glue dot.

7. Cut a 1/8" strip of Chocolate Chip card stock and attach a flag to it.  Attach the strip to the chick.

Isn't it strange how one thing leads to another?  Well then I thought why not make a flowerpot card that stands up on its own?

 

Here are the measurements to make a stand up flowerpot card.

1. Cut a piece of Cajun Craze card stock 9 1/2" x 4 1/4".

2. Score at 1",  4 1/2",  5 1/4",  6".

3. Fold  card at 5 1/4" score line.  Measure in 3/4". Repeat on the other side.

4. Cut from the foldine to the 1" score line.  Do not cut the 1" lip.

5. Fold score lines into a "W".  Secure the opening with ribbon.
