Watchin' X-Files with No Lights On

This week, inspired by the Colonel no doubt, Dmarks assigned us the word CHICKEN for our Saturday Scavenger Hunt. I wasn't sure what I was going to take pictures of, as I don't know any genuine CHICKENs! So, instead, I thought I'd show you how I can make a little paper CHICKEN. No, not origami. I suck at that. But even a doofus like me can make a little paper CHICKEN with the right equipment!

Ready? Here we go...
Here is the CHICKEN diecut.

Here is the AccuCut all ready to go.

Here she is after her trip under the rollers...

Ta Da! Say hello to our Little Red Hen. Our very own paper CHICKEN. Get yourself some other diecuts and create a whole barnyard scene :-)

Thank you for not being too CHICKEN to stop by today! I am looking forward to seeing everyone else's depictions of CHICKEN. Check with Dmarks and find out who he will tag for the week to come. Cluck!

Cool chicken! But I bet he'd be happier if he had a flamethrower :)

Sebastien: Ah, it appears you know this chicken...you're correct.

That AccuCut thing is sweet! Wow! That'd be cool for making stencils, right? But how do you get the image to the diecut, I wonder. I just watched a few 'how to' videos on youtube...

Sebastien said...

Yeah, me and him go way back. We're cool like that.

Bobby: I looooove our AccuCut. We have to buy the different dies and they are expensive. I forget about how much I could learn to do myself on YouTube.

Sebastien: I had a feeling.

"Chickity China the Chinese chicken"

That's a crafty chicken you have there! Finger lickin' good! :D

OK, that is definitely unique. Now, do you have an alien diecut?

Churlita said...

So cool. You really went the distance for this Scavenger Hunt.

Tara: haha! Thanks, that is as crafty as I get :-)

AlienCG: Keepin' it real up in here. Sadly, we are lacking an alien. This must be remedied.

Churlita: I thought it was interesting how many different ways there turned out to be to show the word chicken!

That's really neat!
