A Turkey for Thanksgiving

Designer Notes:This silly turkey can hold small treats and even be used as a name place card at the dinner table for kids on Thanksgiving. He’s made using a handmade “sour cream” style paper tube and a few fans using the Scor Buddy Tool and Bo Bunny’s Fall Foliage pattern paper.

Bo Bunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Foliage, Blaze, Bouquet and Stripe/Forever Fall
Buttons: Eyes from Whoo-ligans Buttons & Bling
Other: Triangle and 2” Circle Punch (Fiskars Americas); Heart Template (Provo Craft)
Instructions: 1. Score a 4” x 12” piece of stripe pattern paper at ¼” markings and accordion fold. Cut a 4” circle from pattern paper, then shape the accordion folded strip into a fan. Adhere to the circle using hot glue or other strong adhesive to keep the fan’s shape.2. Create a “sour cream” container by making a tube from 3 ½” x 6” piece of brown pattern paper. Fill with treats and seal ends with adhesive. 3. Create 2 small fans in the same fashion as the tale from 2 – 4” x 2” pieces of pattern paper. 4. Create a face using a 2” circle punch, a small triangle and inverted heart as well as a couple of wiggly eyes.5. Assemble the turkey with hot glue or strong adhesive. First, attach the body to the tail, then add the face by bending the top front corner of the “sour cream” container. Add the wings on the sides. To help the turkey stand, glue a 2” circle to the bottom and add 2 hearts for feet.
