Supplies You'll Need to Create this Project:
- Scoring Wheel
- Cricut Design Space Project
- Cardstock in Brown, Tan, Orange, Red, and Yellow
- Google Eyes
- Double-Sided Tape Runner
- Adhesive Foam Dots
- Mini Glue Dots
- Ultra Fine Sharpie Marker
- Cellophane Bag
- Bone Folder (optional)
- Craft Tweezers (optional)
Cut with the Cricut:
Upload the Turkey Treat Bags project in Cricut Design Space.
The file is sized as is to create a bag that measures 1.5 x 3 x 4 inches. If you would like, you can resize it. Just make sure you resize the entire design as a group so all of the pieces resize correctly.
Select "Make It" and follow the prompts to cut the design out of the 5 different colors of cardstock.
You should end up with a total of 9 paper shapes.
Assemble Paper Turkey:
First, let's assemble the turkey pieces.
Arrange the five feathers into an arc. You can put the feathers in any color pattern you want.
Apply tape runner to the top half of the largest brown circle.
Turn it over and place it on top of the feathers.
Pick up the circle and make sure all of the feathers are stuck to the body. If not, simply apply the tape runner to the back of the feather and adhere it to the body.
Using a pair of tweezers, place the two googly eyes on a mini glue dot. Mine fit perfectly over the dot.
Adhere the googly eyes to the smaller brown circle. Then glue on the small orange beak as well.
I am not going to attach the head to the body just yet.
Prepare the Treat Bag:
Fold the treat bag along the score lines using a bone folder.
The long edge with the flap underneath is the front of the bag.
Place the turkey body on the bag where you want it to be.
Push it up, just a bit, and draw on some turkey feet. I just did a line for the leg and three toes.
Assembling the Treat Bag:
Add the tape runner to the back of the turkey body, and adhere it to the front of the bag, on top of the legs.
Apply an adhesive foam dot to the back of the turkey head, and press it into place above the turkey body.
Add the tape runner to the flaps of the treat bag and secure them into place.
Don't forget the Candy:
Add your favorite candy to a cellophane bag, and secure it with a twist tie.
I used Rolos because that copper-colored wrapper is perfect for fall.
Slide the candy bag into your new turkey treat bag and it is ready to gift!
This would be a great craft for kids too. Let them arrange the feathers and glue them all together. They would have a blast!
