Hershey Kiss Turkey

This was a little treat that I made to decorate my sister's Thanksgiving table.   Once again I used my Cricut to cut the little turkey out.  The body and the feathers are two separate pieces.  I sandwiched a toothpick between them and then adhered them together with pop up dots.  The toothpick was trimmed down and then I stuck it into the Hershey Kiss.  They were pretty simple to make and were a big hit!

Paper:  Bazzill, Recollections, Echo Park

Take Out Santa

Time sure has a way of slipping by, really fast!  Besides working, I've had two craft fairs and just came back from spending a week with my Dad in Massachusetts.  I have been working non stop on my crafty adventures, yet didn't take photos  of every thing.  I did take some, and I just edited them all, so I'm going to start posting.  There are few goodies left from Halloween and Thanksgiving that will be sprinkled in with the Christmas crafts.  

A few years back, after Halloween, I bought a whole bunch of take out boxes that where on clearance for 90% off.  I really just wanted the handles so that I could make different boxes.  I finally got around to making them and thought they would be perfect to pack a small Christmas gift or baked good.

Using some paper punches, Nestabilities, and my handy dandy Cricut Explore, I was able to make the face for my Santa.  I absolutely love the Cricut Explore, the possibilities are endless!  For added dimension, I used an embossing folder, textured paper, and my favorite pop up dots.  I tied the candy canes to the top with a piece of baker's twine to make it look like chop sticks on top of Chinese food take-out.
