Turkey Rings


These didn't photograph too well, but really, they came out so cute (if I do say so myself :) ) My turkey came straight out of our SU demonstrator magazine and he is made entirely of punches - isn't he cute!(I left off the little pilgrim hat, and added that red 'hangy' thing under his neck instead - sorry I'm not sure the technical term, but you all know what I mean.) So I decided to attach him to a piece of Apricot Appeal, ticket punched the corners and then sponged the edges with Choc Chip ink. Placed two vertical slots using the Horizontal Slot Punch to kreate a ribbon tie to secure my napkin in. TIP: To accommodate the width of the Choc Chip 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon I simply punched my slot twice, moving it slightly to one side to make the opening larger. I used a retired alphabet set and stamped out my letters in Ruby Red Craft ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. Voila' a little fun holiday accent. :)
Punches Needed for your Turkey:
1", 1-1/4", 1/8" Circles
Scallop Circle
Boho Blossoms

For now, go kreate
