Turkey Time

Whoops! I was so focused on Christmas that I almost forgot about Thanksgiving! For everyone else out there like me, Thanksgiving is on the 24th this year. Here's a special project I dreamt up just in time for the occasion.

They're place card holders for your Thanksgiving dinner table. This would be a good project to have your kids help you with because it's quick and pretty simple.

Your supplies are: scrapbooking paper (in fall colors), chipboard "gear" shapes, mini clothespins, a wooden spoon (like the kind you get with those little cups of ice cream), a pencil, scissors, and double stick tape or glue.

First, measure and mark your mini clothespin on the wooden spoon. Use your scissors to cut the spoon on the marked line.

Next, trace two gear shapes and one spoon shape on scrapbooking paper and cut out. Glue or tape the paper to the shapes.

Then, draw two eyes for your turkey face and cut out a small triangle for it's nose. Glue or tape the mini clothespin to the gear shape and then the turkey face to the clothespin. Make sure that everything will stand up before gluing.

The place card gets inserted in the mini clothespin so your guests know where to sit. That's it! I think I'll name my turkey "Sprocket." Have a fun and wonderful Thanksgiving!
