Turkey Tutorial

Want a little kid friendly craft to add to your Thanksgiving decoration stash?  Take your digital scrapbook supplies and turn them into this:

I made this little turkey for The Hybrid Chick's Digital Scrapbook Day Hybrid Challenge and now I'm going to show you how incredibly easy he was.

First, print off the digital papers you are going to use on to matte presentation paper.   I used the awesome designer collab Season of Thankfulness from The Digichick.

Take an empty container (you could even use an empty toilet paper roll) and clean it out.  I used an empty spice container:

Then I drew on the back of each of the five papers that were to be feathers and cut them out and assembled.  I used red line tape to attach them together.

Then I attached the paper around the spice container:

Finally, I assembled the turkey and added some wings and facial features.  

Now the turkey sits on my dining room table.  If I happen to get any more empty containers in the next few weeks I am definitely going to have my kids join in and help me make some more.  They are that easy!
