The Perfect Petal
Happy Black Friday

Gobble, Gobble

Name_plate_2 One of my favorite commercials is the "Eat More Chiken" campaign by Chick-Fil-A.  Those cows totally crack me up!  I couldn't help but think of those cows when I was assembling today's project.  With Turkey Day arriving tomorrow, I am in the midst of making place cards for each place setting.   Isn't this turkey cute??  A big "thanks" to my fellow demonstrator, Carol Taggart, for sharing this adorable bird.  Here's the best part - this guy was made completely using ONE punch - the scalloped circle punch - honestly!

Here's a quick overview of how this little guy came together:

Punch out a number of scalloped circles in various colorsScallops then cut them in half.

Using another scalloped circle, cut the body of the turkey.  It should look something like this:Body

Using the same punch (I told you it was a one-punch bird!), cut out the remaining pieces of the bird (feet, beak, etc.) and assemble so it looks like the following:  Turkey

For the eyes, I just added a touch of a black marker.

There you have it!  A cute addition to your Thanksgiving table.

Have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving!
