Right after Halloween I was able to get 15 boxes of Dots on clearance for .33 cents each. I know some of you thought I was crazy buying that many, but I knew I wanted to use them for my sons birthday party. I was able to use my thrifty find, to make a cute craft project. It was a total hit with the kids, and they were all so proud of their little turkeys.
Start out with a box of dots or any other candy.
Cover it with a tan sheet of card stock
I then used my Stampin Up punches to cut out;
- a large circle for the head
- 2 small circles for the eyes, and a hole punch for the eye middle
- a square for the beak
- round scallop circles for the turkey feathers
Fold the square to make a beak, and use the circles for eyes
Glue the head to the bottom of the box
Fold the scallops circles into a “V” shape
Glue the back part of the “V”
Glue them above the Turkey head
I had all the shapes pre cut for the kids, they had a blast making them!
I saw this idea on a email from a friend, and changed it to work for my kids.
