Treat Bags For My Turkeys!

Hello friends. Today I get to host the new Designer Challenge over at My Creative Time. The challenge is to make any kind of project so long as it has a THANKSGIVING THEME and uses some My Creative Time products.

I had a blast with this challenge. My mind was going crazy thinking of all sorts of fun possibilities on how to use Emma's current dies to make a turkey. I love the little turkey gift bags and I hope you do too.

Everything on the topper of this treat bag was made using Emma's products other than the little Critter Faces (size small)  by Peachy Keen Stamps. Just in case you ever want to make these I'm going to list what I used. First let's start with the products that are the same for both turkey treat toppers. The green piece is My Creative Time's Stitched Doily Die. The brown turkey base is the bunny die from the To My Best Peep stamp and die set (I just cut off the bunny ears). The sentiment on both of them is from the new Teeny Tag Holidays stamp set.

On my girl turkey I used both layers of the Scalloped Stitched Rosette Dies for her tail feathers. I have seen some of the other My Creative Time designers use rosettes for tail feathers on turkeys and thought it looked really cute. To make her little hair bow I used the tiny little hearts you get when you cut the olive pick on the Cocktail Party Stitched Dies

The tail feathers on the boy turkey are the bunny ears from the To My Best Peep bunny die. I used the present die from the new All Around Holidays set for the hat. I just trimmed off the bow and cut another hat in red and trimmed it down so I could layer it on top.

I hope these give you some fun ideas. I know that my design team sisters have made some AMAZING projects for this challenge to help inspire you. I hope you will join in the fun challenge too. I can't wait to see what you make! Hugs- Glora

  4. Wow, how very creative you are!! Love your turkey treat bags!!

  5. OMGosh Gloria these are to cute!! I love how you thought out of the box on this one!! I would have never guessed in a million years that the body of the turkey's were the bunny die. That blew me away! lol Then to find out that the feathers of the boy turkey were the bunny ears-well you blew me away again! I was trying to figure it out on my own, but I couldn't guess what you used for the boy at all. Great job!!

  6. Your turkeys are so adorable. I love the colors and how the rosette and bunny ears look for feathers. Clever how you used the dies. Great challenge and project.
