Happy Thanksgiving, everyone, and welcome to the CDD Daily post being brought to you from The Relativity of Paper. I'm going to keep this short and sweet because it's Thanksgiving Day, a day to be with family and friends.
I always try to get the most use out of my die-cuts by using them for more than what they are intended. Today I'm sharing how to turn some everyday circles, ovals, and banners into a Turkey.
I was thinking that this would be fun for kids to make. You could pre-cut the pieces and let them assemble, a little holiday craft to keep them busy while you baste the turkey.
Here are the products I used:
- 4.25"x 5.5" card base - 8.5" x 11" #110 cardstock scored at 5.5" and cut at 4.25" to create to top fold card bases
- Die-cut Kraft cardstock using largest Fancy Frame Die
- Die-cut seven banners using the wavy banner die and cut in half, die-cut five banners using largest banner die from the Flag Banner Dies, type Gobble Gobble onto cardstock and die-cut with banner die to create wings
- Die-cut scalloped circle and stitched circle using Stitched In Circle Dies
- Die cut oval from Fancy Stitched Label Dies
- Die-cut bow tails from Shaker Tag Dies for feet
- Layer Kraft cardstock onto card base
- Assemble turkey and add 3D mounting foam to back, adhere to Kraft cardstock
- Add googly eyes to finish off and sentiment inside
Sentiment I used;
Gobble til You Wobble.
Happy Turkey Day!
