turkey card tutorial

Don't those turkey feathers look cute? Do they make you want to run for your scallop punch RIGHT NOW? They are super easy to make!

Using your circle scallop punch (any size will do), punch 3 scallop circles. You'll want to make sure you like both patterns of the paper as they will both show. Next, fold 5 of the scallops down. Flip the circle scallop over so that the orange side is now facing up. Now, fold in both sides--you can see I've folded in just one in the picture. If you want, it helps to make a center fold before you fold the side in so that you know both sides are evenly folded in. Does this make sense? Let me know if it doesn't!

Adhere all three to your card, use circle and square punches to make the remaining parts of your turkey. Your circle sizes will depend on the size of your scallop punch--just make him the way YOU want to make him. For the feet I used a slit punch, but you could use the "v" letter from an orange set of Thickers. You could even use googley eyes to make this turkey more festive! Hhhmmmm, maybe I should have done that . . .

Hope you have a great week preparing for turkey day! We are off to the store to buy ingredients to make Rice Krispie Turkey Pop Treats per my kids request.
