Any Turkey Can Tango!

Hey there, Peeps!

Happy Election Day!  Today is actually a Teacher Workday here so Linz and Zach are enjoying lounging at home today.  Some of us still had to go to work.  *sigh*  Oh well....

The two projects today will hopefully bring a smile to your face.  The title of this entry, "Any Turkey Can Tango" is actually the name of a song my kindergarteners sang every year in the fall.  You haven't lived until you've watched a group of cutie patootie 5 yr. olds perform this little diddy!  :-)

Here are the two projects....

I can't take credit for that stinkin' cute turkey.  I'm not sure who the original designer was but "GOOD JOB" to you!  The project on the left is a 4"x4" note card to give with the little "Turkey Treats" Tic Tac project.  Or you can give them out separately.

They are both super simple to make.  You just need a couple of punches, the Square Lattice Embossing Folder #119976 and some Googlie Eyes #127539 and VOILA!  The cover for the tic tac container was made using the Two Tags Die #115954 for the Big Shot.  It was cut out of Chocolate Chip card stock and then embossed with the folder.  The "turkey feathers" were made using various colors of card stock and the 1 1/4" Scallop Punch  #127811 in the Holiday Mini Catalog.  The beak, the "snood" - that's the red thingy hanging over the beak, the "comb" - that red thingy on his head and feet are made using the same scallop punch and just trimming them to create the desired shapes.  The head is made using the 3/4" Circle Punch #119873 and the body was made with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch #119850.

There are so many ways to use your punches and creating tons of fun projects.  I just love finding new ways to use them.  The sky's the limit!
