Turkey with a 5-Point Flower Punch

Gobble, gobble...

Here's a turkey project that we made at a workshop last week. I used the 5-Point Flower Punch from SU, the 1 1/3 circle, the 3/4 circle and the Spring Flower Punch.

I punched 2 5-Point Flowers each of 3 different colors (Glorious Green, Real Red, Only Orange).

Stack the circles (Chocolate Chip) and adhere together for body and head. Cut the petals of the flowers apart and adhere to back of turkey in way you like. Cut tip of one of the orange pedals off to make the beak.

Use the Spring Flower punch to make two feet and one gobbler thingy.

If you are going to attach the turkey to a card, you can do so now. If you want to make a name plate or something else, you can put a large Chocolate Chip circle on the back to hide the messiness as well.

It sounds like a lot of work, but it really doesn't take long to put together, and they are so adorable!

This was shown to me by Nyla Kelley.

Hey there! Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog. That makes me feel so much better about my daughter's surgery. She was asking me a bunch of questions about it today and I can tell she is starting to get anxious. Anyway, thanks so very much.... oh, and... really cute turkey!
