Turkey Treat Holder with Core'Dinations

As the holidays approach, it's fun to start planning and creating those special little things that make a hand-crafted celebration. In my family, we usually have small favors for each of our guests. I'm always hunting for ideas that are cute, but aren't too expensive or too time consuming to make. Since Thanksgiving is just around the corner, now is the perfect time to get a jump start with these adorable Turkey Treat Holders. Won't these look fabulous on the dinner table?

 Turkey Treat Holder Supply List
  • Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered Collection
  • Core'dinations Heavyweight 80 lb. Kraft
  • Core Essentials Brights Cardstock

 Step 1. Die cut feathers. With this die, I was easily able to cut 4 layers of paper at a time.
 Step 2. Add ribbon around the lip of the pot.
 Step 3. Glue the feathers.
 Step 4. Hand draw turkey body. Cut out.
 Step 5. Punch a pear shape to create the turkey's wattle. Snip a triangle for the beak. Use buttons and brads to create the eyes. Attach to flower pot.
 Step 6. Wrap treats in tulle. Tie with burlap cord and place in flower pot.

 Hope this helps make your holidays even happier!   ~Gini
