Turkey Tins Tutorial

Now, say that that three times fast! Thank you, again, for the all of the sweet comments on my turkeys. Here are the directions.

-Create the belly band the same way the as the on the spiders and pumpkins.

-The body is cut using 2 1/2 inch and 2 inch circle punch or nestabilitie.

-Using a 5/8 circle punch, cut 2 white circles and 1 brown circle. Cut the brown circle in half to use as the eyelids. I used the crop-a-dile to cut the black centers of the eyes. Attach the eyes to the 2 inch circle using pop up dots.

-The beak and waddle are cut free hand, glued together and attached with a pop up dot on the face.

-The feathers are cut using the leaf on the Doodlecharms Cartridge. The are cut black out at 2 1/4 inches. I used a black pen to accent the details. Using snail, I attached the leaves (overlapping) in a semi circle around the 2 1/2 circle.

-Attach the head to the body with pop up dots.

-Using sticky strip, attach the back of the turkey to the belly band.

-Apply brown stickles to the eyelids and yellow stickles to the beak.

-While your stickles are drying, you can make your name tag. I just stamped our names, cut them out with an oval punch, and attached them to little wooden skewers. Attach a little bow to cover up the skewer. I used a little piece of sticky strip to attach it to the back of the turkey.

If you have any questions, please let me know. If you make any of these, I would love to see a picture.

Thanks for stopping by,
