Turkey Time

Thanksgiving is just around the corner.  I thought I would use some of my left over candy bars to make some Thanksgiving treats.  I may use them for the kids teachers. The turkeys are made from the Stampin' Up! Owl Punch.  This is such a fun punch! I've seen owls, turkeys, ghosts, almost too many things to name, made from this punch.  The Feathers are also punches.  I can't decide which way I like to make the turkey's feathers.  Last year I made the turkey like you see on the left, using the scallop circle to make the feathers.  I recently saw a few online that used the 5 petal flower punch instead.  I think I'm going to stick to the scallop circle, its easier to line up. 

This picture shows a close up on all the little parts that come together to turn the owl punch into a turkey.  I used the heart that comes with the punch to make the beak, and I cut out an extra foot to make the turkey's waddle.  I think that waddle is the correct word for that thing that hangs off the turkeys face, but if not, let me know :)   The colors I used are More Mustard, Cajun Craze and Chocolate Chip.  The "Happy Thanksgiving" stamp is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. 
This is the box I made last year.  It used the "box #2" die for the box.   Thanks for stopping by!
