Today we worked on some Thanksgiving presents for grandparents, a paper pumpkin for the table and a turkey card.
Here's the pumpkin, complete with a paper vine and leaf, Joel wanted to put some straw inside to make it look like it just came from the farm.
To make the pumpkin we cut 8 strips (1' x 11") from dusty durango cardstock (SU). Punched a hole in the top and bottom of each strip, secured with a brad and them moved the strips around to make the pumpkin shape. The vine and leaf are gumball green cardstock (SU). Joel drew and cut out the leaf, we wrapped the vine strip around a pencil to make it curly.
For the turkey we traced and cut out two hands, one for the base, one for the fingers. Good thing I stocked up on washi tape! We used the snowflake punch (SU) for the turkey feet and the word window punch for whatever that thing in that turkeys have hanging off their neck. Then we addded googly eyes and a beak and voila...turkey card.
Gobble til ya wobble!!!
