Today I'm showcasing the stamp set: Honeycomb Happiness. I know that Christmas has barely passed, but I just couldn't resist creating a cute little Easter Package with this adorable little chickadee.

I stamped the little chickadee on So Saffron cardstock and cut him out. I added in some shadows with my So Saffron marker. The beak is cut out of Tangelo Twist cardstock.

The nest is made with our 1-1/4" Burlap Ribbon. I used approximately 12". I cut both sides off and removed several strands from each side. I then trimmed and snipped at the edges to create different lengths. Using the pulled threads and Linen Thread, I tied knots all the way done the length of the ribbon, squeezing it together. Then I ruffled and frayed the edges. I then glued the strand around the edge of 1-3/4" circle, wrapping it around twice. 

Around the inside edge of the nest, I placed a Whisper White strip of cardstock to look like an egg shell. I glued in the chickadee and filled in the remaining space with a cut up cotton ball.

To decorate my box, I sponged white circles on with some Whisper White craft ink, and just incase you're wondering about my ribbon and bow... It's a fake! No un-tying here!
