Gobble Gobble!

Hello Everyone! It's Naureen with a fun Thanksgiving project. Well Thanksgiving is approaching quickly and I am starting to get organized, because I have lots of family coming to town. One of the things I love to do for my family is make place cards for the table. Usually I try to make some sort of turkey and this year I made a cute and fun turkey using the MOSD shaped cardstock pages. This was a really fun and easy project to do. This turkey is my prototype per say, but I hope to make a few more using some of the other shaped pages.

I usually don't measure when doing projects but here are some briefy directiosn to help you create your own turkey.


  • MOSD Shaped Cardstock Pages (Scallop)

  • 5 Sheets of Fall Colored Cardstock

  • Brown Paint

  • Glimmer Mist

  • Brown Ink

  • Circle Cutter

  • Scissors

  • Rhinestones

  • Adhesive


  1. First you need to pain the scalloped cardstock brown and spray with Glimmer Mist.

  2. After the Glimmer Mist has tried, fold the scallop in half.

  3. Cut the turkey's body using a circle cutter. The body is 3 1/2 inches and the head is 1 1/2 inches. Ink the edges.

  4. For the feathers cut 4 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch squares. Flod in half and freehand cut the feather shape. Ink the edges and the fold.

  5. Glue the circles to the scallop one on top of the other.

  6. Glue the feathers behind the circles.

  7. To clean up the back and make it look neat, I cut another circle and place it over the feathers in the back of the turkey.

  8. Glue on rhinestones for the eyes.

  9. Cut a small heart for the mouth.

  10. You may write your names on or die cut the letters.
