Time to think turkey with Thanksgiving just one week away. While I’m seriously thinking about homemade noodles more than the big bird himself, I thought it would be fun to create a turkey for the pre-holiday fun.
Isn’t he cute? LOL!
With a few Stampin’ Up! Framelits & Thinlits, a Big Shot, Colorful Cardstock, glue, snips, and the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch, you too can make this fun little guy.
You’ll use all three sizes (each color cut with all three sprigs-picture only shows representing colors) of the pine sprigs from the Pretty Pines Thinlits, the two solid pine cones, and the sprig will be trimmed for the gobbler. Colors could vary, but I used: Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive & Rich Razzleberry.
The base of the turkey body is the next to largest scalloped circle in the Layering Circles Framelits. The legs are 2 of the medium size pine sprigs from the Pretty Pines Thinlits- trim with snips as shown and attach to front of the scalloped circle.
The Swirly Scribbles Thinlits will help create the remainder of the face and body.
Trim the Cherry Cobbler gobbler from the sprig from the Pretty Pines Thinlits using your snips.
Adhere the two pine cones with glue and add the beak on top of the small pine cone, the gobbler below the large pine cone.
The misshapen circle will then be adhered under the gobbler when it is attached to the head.
Attach the middle size swirl from Swirly Scribbles Thinlits to the face you just built.
Flip over and begin attaching the feathers (colorful pine sprigs). You may wish to add or omit the smallest swirl for stability as you build you turkey and turn it over to look at it (I used it).
Once all the feathers are attached, add the largest swirl behind them.
Attach to the legs/scalloped circle piece (legs are completely in front of the circle, not behind).
Finish by adding eyes punched with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.
Happy Thanksgiving friends!
I hope this year you’ve found many things for which you are grateful.
Thank you for visiting. My Stampin’ Up! friends (YOU!) are on my gratitude list. Thank you!
Until next time…
