I decided I needed to put all the projects to the side and focus on a single project! (I think I might have a bit ADD 'cuz I jump from unfinished project to unfinished project a LOT. I feel so scatterbrained sometimes!) Anyway, I finished one! Yay me! It could be called my first Easter themed project of 2009. But then again, it's generic enough that it could be Spring, Baby or just Good Ol' Country Fun. :)
It's my chick'n box. (not to be confused with chicken pox. Eeeew!)
Thanks Diane for helping me get something finished today :)

Here are some more pictures so you can better see the pocket....
For those of you that are new to how I use my Cricut to score, please refer to the last paragraph in the Birdhouse post. I think it clearly explains how you can use your bug to score. For future reference you can also click on "Scoring" in the Labels list on the right side of my blog.
Note: Yes, I know the angle of the wings on the back of the box don't match the front of the box. It's not a HUGE difference but it's noticeable. If it bothers you that much I'll fix it but it doesn't bother me so I left it.

Kasey used the tabs with the toplayer chick and toplayer egg and created a single chick to apply to a TBBM box. (Her son wanted a box that would hold more treats!) Supe cute idea! And a great way to use th e top layers. :) Thanks for sharing Kasey!!
Jen (another Jen, not me) posted some adorable chickie boxes on the message board and also on her blog. Don't you just love the decorated eggshells.... and the pink chick?!! Kinda reminds me of when I was young and they used to dye the fluff on baby chicks. You could actually buy a blue or pink or purple chick to give as an Easter gift. LOL Great job Jen. Thanks for sharing :)
