It's time to Gobble 'Til You Wobble at My Craft Spot, where this week's challenge is all about Thanksgiving décor. I decided to make these fun turkey place settings for my family. We've already celebrated Thanksgiving here in Canada, but everybody is so delighted with my turkeys that we've been using them at the dinner table all week! I'll put them away soon, though, and save them until next year.
The fun little turkeys are from Create a Critter. I did lots of inking, adding some embossing with my Herringbone and Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folders and did some doodling too. The eyes are from a Peachy Keen Critter stamp set. I even added a little baker's twine bowtie, using some wonderful vintage twine from My Craft Spot. The "Turkey Time" sentiment is from My Craft Spot's Happy Fall set, and I punched it out with a Stampin' Up window punch. (I've got to say that my youngest LOVES this stamp. He thinks it's so funny and calls out "Turkey Time!" whenever he sees the place settings!)
The bottoms of my place holders are bits of branches with part cut off in order to make a solid base. There is also a slit in the top in order for the turkeys to have a spot to sit. They do have legs tucked away! I used Cuttin' Up for the font for our names, and added some ink and doodling to those as well.
Please head over to My Craft Spot to see what the rest of the Design Team has made to decorate for Thanksgiving! And don't forget to check out the fabulous new Winter and Christmas stamp sets while you're there!
