This is definitely a children's project - nothing fancy about it - but something I thought some of you would like to make with your children for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday as I have had a couple of request for crafts that smaller children can do.
This little turkey would probably look a little more "substantial" if you used a Hershey Nugget candy bar rather than a mini-hershey bar, but I had to use what I had on hand! The Nugget's are just a little taller and would give a little better support to the head and tail feathers. Another cuter addition would be to use the tiny little googley eyes that you can find at any craft store. I only had really big googley eyes so I had to improvise with just hole punched paper.
The supplies you will need to make this little guy is Stampin' Up!s Scalloped Circle Punch (Item 109043) $15.95 and the 1" circle punch (Item No. 109046) $10.95. Then of course a candy bar of your choice along with various "turkey color" cardstocks. In my sample, for his body I used Chocolate Chip Patterned Designer Paper, along with Yoyo Yellow and Pumpkin Pie cardstock for the feathers. His little face was a circle from Creamy Caramel Cardstock and then his beak is simply a 1/2" square of Yoyo yellow cardstock folded in half.
I got this idea from another SU! demonostrators blog, Kimberley Morris . Her little flock of turkeys are very cute and have a much better photo if you would like to check hers out. She used the googley eyes which also makes the turkeys much more cuter. Once I get to the store to buy some of those little eyes and some Nugget bars, I will certainly make a much more proper turkey to post, but wanted to share this idea with you this morning while it was hot on the brain!
Make it a great day!
