I started by creating a turkey with the fun Build A Turkey set from Unity Stamp Co. I stamped a tail feather arrangement on Close to Cocoa cardstock overlapping the feathers just a smidge at the base. I then stamped each tail feather on a different designer paper and cut out. I wanted to brighten the paper a bit so I did a little coloring with the Copic markers. Next I adhered the paper to the Close to Cocoa tail base. Hmmm... something was still missing so I inked the whole tail base with VersaMark and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. Sparkle and glitter galore - perfect! I then stamped the turkey body on PTI Select white cardstock, colored with Copics and cut out. I adhered the body to the tail base with dimensionals and added more glitter to the beak area. Okay, that might have been glitter overkill but I was on a roll! ;)
I thought the turkeys ended up extra cute... so cute that I turned them into magnets. So instead of attaching them directly to the candy wrappers I used a metal washer/magnet fastening system. Snort --- I'm sooo technical today! I tried hiding the washer behind the cardstock so you wouldn't see it after removing the turkey but the magnetic pull wasn't strong enough so I plopped it onto the front. Ehh... we all know where that wrapper is going to end up anyways after the candy is eaten but maybe the turkey will be rescued! ;)
Gobble gobble gobble! ;)
