We had a lot of fun making this Easter Chicken Handbag. Not only is it colorful and cute, it is remarkably practical and just begging to be filled with eggs or something similar. Choose some crazy colored paper for the wings to make everyone smile when they see your creation.

Painted plate ready to staple

Cut out an orange triangle shape and glue this onto the paper plate to make your chicken's "beak".
Trace around both of your hands onto the colored paper and cut these out - these will form the chicken's "wings".
Staple the two chicken "wings" onto the sides of the paper plate.

Staple the wings on

Trim along the top edge of the paper plate and place your ribbon onto the left hand side, ready to staple into position.
Staple along the outer edge of the paper plate, around the the top right edge, leaving an opening for the top.
Staple the other side of the ribbon into position.
