Thanksgiving Turkey

The holidays are fast approaching and I've been wondering where autumn went?  I thought it would be fun to share my thanksgiving turkey.  Enjoy!

Punches Needed:
Ornament punched in Cocoa for head
1 3/4" Circle punched in Cocoa for body
Modern Label punched in Cocoa for neck
Full Heart punched in Cocoa for thighs
Butterfly punched in Chocolate for wings
Heart to Heart - large heart in Riding Hood Red for snood & top of head, wide heart in Pumpkin for beak
Word Window in Pumpkin for legs
Boho Blossoms flower for feet
Large Oval in Riding Hood Red for tail feathers
Teardrop in black for eyes (Fiskars or MS)





1) Cut Full Heart in half and cut the bottom points off of each half.  Round out the sharp corners for the chicken thighs.  Cut 3 petals off of the 6 petal flower in Boho Blossoms for feet.  Fold wide heart from Heart to Heart to make the beak (fold rounded top parts down).  Cut large heart from Heart to Heart in half for snood and top of head.  Cut butterfly in half for wings.

2) Sponge feathers with riding hood red.  Sponge body, head and wing pieces with chocolate chip.  Sponge beak, legs and feet pieces with pumpkin pie.

3) Glue neck onto body.  Attach head with dimensional.  Glue snood onto back of beak.  Attach to face with dimensional.  Glue on eyes and add highlights with uni-ball white gel pen. 

4) Glue legs onto thighs.  Glue on feet.  Attach thighs to body with dimensionals.  Attach so that the feet are crossed at the ankle.  You could position the legs in the splits so that you can make the card smaller in heighth.  Attach wings with dimensionals.

5) Arrange ovals in an arc for the tail.  Run a line of glue around the inside of the arc and place body over the top to glue in place.

Card Cutting dimensions

6" x 6" Chocolate Chip for card body folded in half
Leaf print 5 7/8" x 4"
Polka dot print 5 7/8" x 2"
5/8" Wide chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon
