Spring "Sparkle" Chicks...

I made this using Silhouette Double Sided Adhesive Paper.  I put it on some boards I made to look like barn wood.  If you want a tutorial on how to make the barn wood you can see that here With our cubbies tutorial or here with our Barnwood boxes tutorial. To see how I made the barn wood boards look like flat pallet art style you can see that tutorial here with our Heart Board.  My boards for this project are just a 3.5 inch pine board.  The dimensions for this project are 14 in. wide by 10 3/4 in. high.

 The chicks do have a little different texture to them.  I used some beads for the chicks and they turned out kinda fun. I like how the light catches the beads and makes them sparkle.

I found these small beads at Michaels in the Bead section. I thought they would offer a different kinda "fluffy" appearance for the chicks... Another fun part about the beads is they offer a different sparkle  or dimension to the Chicks when the light catches them.

 I sized my chicks download in Silhouette Studio.  Cut them out with the white paper facing up

Did a Layout of how I wanted them to sit on the boards

Peeled off the yellow and white paper and placed the clear sticky paper on the boards.  I next sprinkled the beads onto the sticky paper and shaped them around the chicks.  The beads stuck very well to the paper.

Used some yellow glitter for their legs and feet

I put a dab of glue in the hole for their eyes and used a toothpick to drop some black glitter into their eyes...

Cut some vinyl...


I really like this Double-sided Adhesive paper.  It is so fun to work with!

If you decide to make some spring fever chicks, I hope you enjoy yours as much as we have ours...

If you would like to see another tutorial using Double Sided Adhesive Paper made by the Silhouette Company, you can see that here.

I was not paid by the Silhouette company to review this product nor did I receive any compensation from them.  I was given this paper by their company to use and give a review of it on my blog.

With Much Love & Gratitude,
