Tissue box Chicken !

One more entry for the Tissue box challenge, this time we made this chicken!!
I did not have any tissue box at hand when i learnt about the challenge. Had to wait until we emptied one to make something. And as many of you know all my art/craft adventures started only after/with putti. So, i had to search for ideas on web to do something. And i saw that most of it was already done and linked to contest. And then i saw this on 'Aunt Peaches' and she has a great tutorial for it with pictures. Loved the fact that it has 'handprints' and also glue which means putti would enjoy!! So we made it... Well its simple to make.

I made slits in the top part of the box with scissors and folded them inward. Then traced putti's hand onto paper. I used some of her pencil scribbled sheets yay!! more upcycling :) and cut them out. Curled up the fingers (feathers) using a pencil.  I wrapped the outside of the box with white paper, that way even if putti leaves gap in between the hands, the print on the box is not seen.
And then putti glued them first onto inside of the box.
 I asked her to glue them close to each other and she did a great job! Infact she overlapped at places but thats okay.
 Then do the outside.
 Cut the head template (from Aunt Peachs website) and glued it to front. Filled the chicken's tummy with eggs;) Putti played with it saying her chicken is making lots of eggs :))
Stapled a piece of white ribbon as handles and a lovely basket to collect the eggs!!
This would make a nice Easter center piece too!! .
