“We’re Thankful” Paper Turkey Table Decor

Hey friends, Adrianne here, and today I’ve got a fun paper turkey craft that you can print and make at home.  Not only does it look cute as table decor, but it’s also an activity, and an exercise in thankfulness.  There’s also a free printable PDF file to make your own – the shapes are simple, just trace and cut!

Thankful-Paper-Turkey-Craft-2

The turkey is built around a small paper box interior, and it’s a place where the whole family can write something they’re thankful for on a slip of paper, and drop inside.  On Thanksgiving, you can retrieve the papers, and read out load what people have written.

Thankful-Paper-Turkey-Craft-3

Thankful Paper Turkey Craft 4

Step 1. Print your template, and cut and score your box.  If you print the box template directly onto your 8.5 x 11 heavy-duty card stock, you can just cut and score along the lines.  Cut the template for tracing your feathers.  Then, glue your box sides together and the bottom closed.

Thankful Paper Turkey Craft 6

Step 2.  Trace and cut your feathers and circles.  If you have a circle cutter, you’ll find it easiest just to cut two 4″ circles and one 5″ circle.  If you don’t have a circle cutter, you can print the circles from the template, cut and trace them onto your card stock, and cut  them out.  You will need 7 feathers.

Thankful Paper Turkey Craft 5

Step 3. Trim one inch off the 5 inch circle and one of the 4 inch circles.  This will give you a flat edge for assembling it on the box.

Thankful Paper Turkey Craft 7

Step 4 (optional). Emboss and/or sand your Chocolate Box pieces.  I used a Darice brand embossing folder with circles and dots, but any pattern that you have that you like will work well!  I also embossed the feathers with a Darice brand folder with a swirling vine pattern.  I did not sand the feathers.  You can also sand the pieces without embossing them to expose the colored core.

Thankful Paper Turkey Craft 8

Step 5. Assemble your circles on the front of your box.  The trimmed 5-inch circle will be the body, and the intact 4 inch circle will be the head.  Then, arrange the feathers on the back side of your box, and cover the raw edges with the final trimmed 4-inch circle.

Thankful Paper Turkey Craft 9

Step 6. Give it a face!  Add embellishments like google eyes, foam stickers, or cut your own face pieces from card stock.  I used google eyes, and I also cut a pair of feet to add stability to the bottom.  I did not include a template for the facial pieces, because making it your own is half the fun of this craft!

Thankful-Paper-Turkey-Craft-72

You can leave this little guy out on your table all month, and add “thankful” notes to the box at any time as they occur to you – or, wait until Thanksgiving, and have everyone share together!  Happy Thanksgiving!

Clean & Simple Leaf Cards

Thanksgiving Card by Mary Pat

Hi Everyone! Mary Pat here with you today and with the holidays fast approaching I have a great idea for a Clean and Simple Thanksgiving Day card that is so easy that you will want to mass produce these to send to everyone on your Friends and Family list!

novthanks2

For my card I broke out some of the yummy Chocolate Box collection and used the Cherry Cordial.  I then scored and sanded my edges.  I then used a digi cut file from the Silhouette store and cut out the flower.  I backed the negative space with the Tim Holtz Shattered collection.  Finally I stamped my sentiment using the back of the Cherry Cordial.

Here is a video on how this card came about:

Thanks so  much for joining me.  Hope you have a wonderful and crafty day!

Cards and Tags Using Petaloo, Core’dinations & Xyron

We hope you had a fun week with Core’dinations, Petaloo and Xyron! Today is the announcement of our WINNER of the Chalk Core Prize pack! 
a Rafflecopter giveaway
 Email ellen_sosnoski@coredinations.com with “Chalk Core Winner” in the subject line. Please allow 4-6 weeks for shipping and handling. 

Adore Card by Shaunte Wadley

I have to admit- I have a hard time using my Petaloo Flower Stash- not because they are hard to use, they are in fact, the easiest! It seems like every project I have added them to has gone from “pretty” to “breathtaking.” They are so detailed, they make your projects look time intensive when in actuality, all you have to do is adhere them. I have a hard time using them- because I am afraid I will run out of them. There. I said it. I am a craft supply hoarder!

1-e1413492745163Adore Card Supplies:

Step 1: Cut the “Adore” frame shape using my Silhouette Cameo. I cut the frame from Core’dinations Cardmaker Series Pearls in “Tan.” This cardstock is thick and has a beautiful pearlized sheen. It cuts really nicely in electronic cutting machines, even with shapes as intricate as this one. The base of the card was cut with a Lifestyle Crafts die using Core’dinations Basics in Smooth Kraft.

Step 2: The center of the card is some Core’dinations Basics Vellum, circle cut and embossed with a swiss dot embossing folder. Here is a tip I have learned when embossing vellum. Vellum is tricky, it is hard to get the pressure correct when working with embossing and die cut machines. I have had 100 percent success by using a simple kitchen rolling pin! Insert the vellum inside the embossing folder of your choice. Make sure you are working on a flat surface. Roll the rolling pin over the embossing folder, using steady pressure. Gently open part of the folder and check on the vellum, if it is not quite even, or deep enough, roll it again.Adhere the vellum to the center of the card- using adhesive only on the edges so it will not show through.

Step 3: Then, I ran my cut frame shape through my Xyron 5″ Create A Sticker Max. I prefer to use an adhesive machine for intricate shapes like this one. Otherwise it is a very tedious job to try and apply adhesive onto all of the tiny parts of the shape.

Step 4: This card uses flowers from the Petaloo Darjeeling line- specifically the “Tea-stained Blue.” I used three of the lighter shade of flower, and four of the leaves. These flowers and leaved are thick. I found it easiest to use a little piece of Xyron Double Sided Adhesive Tape to adhere them into place.

Here is a close-up of the card:
