Easter Basket Part 2

Happy Wednesday!

Today is part 2 of the my picture tutorials.  Today we will make the Duck.  Please let me know if you like this kind of tutorial and if you would like to see more posts like this.

As I said in the previous post, I am not the original artist of these cute Easter baskets and couldn’t find the original artist.  You can find these Easter basket all over You Tube and Pinterest.

In case you missed yesterdays post I showed you how to make the cute bunny Easter basket.  You can scroll down to see that and how to make the box that you will need to adhere the critters to.

Today we are going to make the cute duck and he doesn’t have as many parts as the bunny.

You will first have to assemble the box from the previous post (just scroll down to find it in the previous post)

3/4″ circle punch 1 pc in orange

Take the heart punch and score it straight down the middle then rotate to one side and score again and rotate to the other side and score again as shown, the scores don’t have to be exact.  Now fold over the two rounded sides over each other and glue in between and hold for a few seconds, I used my tweezers to hold it.

Now glue the beak down to the middle upper half of the top note die.

Now we will assemble the eyes.  Glue the 1″ circles down on either side of the beak as shown, then the 3/4″ black circle onto the white.  Next cut the 1″ yellow circle in half and adhere it to the upper part of the eyes with foam squares.  Add your white gel pen for highlights to the eyes.

Now cut the 1 1/2″ scallop circle in half and glue to the back of the top note die as shown for his wings.  The feet are made by cutting the orange modern label shape in half and rounding the bottom. Adhere with foam squares as shown.

All that is left to do is to adhere your duck to the box and add you handle with mini glue dots.
