Create this festive turkey to jazz up your Thanksgiving scrapbook layout.


  1. Directions for creating the turkey on the left page of the layout
     
  2. Place sunburst stencil over white paper cardstock. Secure in place.
     
  3. Using an InkBlusher, begin adding color through the stencil with the Kaleidacolor Creole Spice inkpad.
     
  4. Ink flourish stamp with Memento Luxe Tuxedo Black and stamp the colored portion of the sunburst.
     
  5. Remove sunburst stencil.
     
  6. Spray with GooseBumps Shimmer; allow to dry completely.
     
  7. Slice sunburst in half and fussy cut inked portion of the sunburst.  Be sure to stop cuttion approximately 2˝ from the middle of the pattern!

  12. Begin punching MANY multiples from the Fireworks! sprayed papers with a tear drop paper punch.
     
  13. Ink the tips of the tear drops with the dark blue color from the Kaleidacolor inkpad.
     
  14. To create the turkey’s neck, cut a piece of cardboard (or similar) that resembles a long, stretched tear drop.  Cut a simple circle for the turkey’s body and a smaller tear drop shaped piece for the head.
     
  15. Cut a small section (above right) from the circle- the feather pieces do not need to be placed here.
     
  16. Run the feather pieces through sticker machine and begin placing them onto the cardboard piece, slightly overlapping the pieces.
