The first paper punch turkey I created was made using one of my little sculpted polymer characters as as a model (an earlier September 8th post). This little turkey I made from what I remembered of a video I saw last year at this time and some notes I had written down on a scratch paper about how the person had made the wings of the turkey - which I thought was so creative.
It took some doing, but I found not only that video, but also the person's blog! :<) Her name is Lorita and you can find her blog and fun video at http://stampwithlorita.typepad.com/
So here is my second little turkey, standing alone and on a Thanksgiving card! I still love the way these wings are made, Lorita! :<)
The body is made by folding each scallop circle in half and then glue them all together to form a ball - as when making an ornament. To make the tail, glue the smaller DP ovals to the larger CS ovals - then glue three of them to overlap and then back-to-back for each side of the tail.
For the head, glue two 1/2" circles together on a neck that is made using a SU word window punch. (Did you catch that I forgot to put those pieces in the layout above!?) :<) The two orange triangles are glued - one on each side - to the brown triangle to make a beak and inserted between the two head pieces. Glue the small black circles to the white circles for the eyes.
Those wonderful wings that I love, are made by first folding each half circle of CS in half and then each side is again folded in half to form a valley/mountain fold. Repeat with the DP half circles and then layer and glue the folded DP on top of the CS. Don't you just love them! :<) You now have all the pieces ready to assemble.
