Smarties Chick

I was looking for a quick little Easter project to hold something small for the kids in my son's class.
This Smarties card seems to be the perfect thing. I am using a few different spring and Easter stamps on them but I will show this little spring chick for my example.
Cut your card stock 6 1/2" long by 3 1/2" wide. Score at 3", again at 3 1/2" and 4". The smaller flap will be your front. You can use a punch or cut with scissors aprx 3/4" down from the top left side( you will have your card folded so your middle score line is the "edge".) Then cut in up to your other score lines, be careful not to cut through the interior score lines. Cut aprx 1/8" below the first cut and notch out that little section. Repeat from the bottom edge up. You should now have two small notched out sections. This has made the edge have 3 sections. You want to push the top 3/4" section and the bottom 3/4" section to the inside of the card. This leaves the bigger section out to slide your Smarties candy through.
Use your slit punch or notch tool and make a half moon closure on the right side of card.
I decorated with the Fun & Fast Notes stamp set colored with Stampin' pastels. The background on my certainly celery card stock is Boho Backgrounds inked in certainly celery ink. Barely banana & almost amethyst card stock were also used.
Have a FUN day!
