Too Cute Thanksgiving Turkey with the Curvy Keepsake Box

So, as I was getting ready for Stamp Club last week, I decided to make this super adorable turkey I had seen online from my friend Darla Roberts.  I was going to let everyone do the pumpkin I had made earlier as one of their projects, but wanted to show them a few different fun ideas with the Curvy Keepsake die.  

No seriously… if you don’t have it yet…. you totally should get it!  Because look at this guy –

Isn’t he the cutest?!?

Tips for creating this box:

  • Use the Feather Framelit from the new holiday catalog to create a great fan of feathers for the tail.  I used the small feathers for the “front” of the tail and the larger feathers for the “back” of the tail.
  • When adhering the feathers for the back, I found it easiest to fan them out and glue them to a circle punch in the same color as the body (in this case, Chocolate Chip cardstock).  I adhered a circle to the front and back of the fan to help hold everything in place.

  • To make the face, use a small heart punch (like this one from the new Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack) and cut the heart in half to make the wattle.
  • For the eyes, I used the large circles from the Owl Punch along with candy dots for the black parts.
  • I used the great fall color combination – Cajun Craze, Daffodil Delight, Blackberry Bliss, and Chocolate Chip

I’ve been loving these boxes so much that I decided to have them as the focus of my class at the end of the month!
