It's Turkey Time!

Good Morning, Stampers!


 Welcome to the LAST day of the Create with Connie and Mary FREE PREVIEW for the 2013 Winter Collection! We go live tomorrow - and you won't want to miss a single day!

We have so many exclusive projects that we are ecstatic to share with you! Cards, giftables, decor and more! Be sure to check out today's PREVIEW project for a chance to win BLOG CANDY HERE!

I have a fun Thanksgiving treat to share with you that features the Sizzix Gift Bow die - a little turkey treat cup! We created these at my monthly Big Shot class this past week and I thought he was too cute and MUST share him with you! Another use for a fun Sizzix die!


It is super-easy to create him! Use #2 and # 4 from the Sizzix die (see photo below for pieces)
as well as a few extra punches. 

1. Begin by cutting one (#2) and one (#4) of the following colors: Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie,    Crushed Curry, Garden Green and Cajun Craze to create the feathers.
2. Adhere the two pieces of each color together. 
3. Cut one (#2) and two (#4) to create the body and wings.
4. Punch (2) 1" circles in Whisper White.
5. Punch (2) 3/4" circles in Basic Black.
6. Punch (1) Modern Label in  Cherry Cobbler. Cut in half.
7. Fold a small piece of Pumpkin Pie and punch with the wing of the Bird Punch.

These little guys can be used for treat cups (as shown), decorations, party favors and more! 
* It has been brought to my attention that Kirsteen Gill is the original creator of this Turkey. 


Happy Stampin'!
