Mr Turkey Strikes Again

Okay, first off – I was asked yesterday for the colors in Mr. Turkey & I want to apologize for leaving those out.  I can’t believe I forgot to post that!  So, here are the colors:

  • Close to Cocoa
  • More Mustard
  • Ruby Red
  • Old Olive
  • Chocolate Chip (for the eyes and the feather lines)

Again, I’m sorry I didn’t mention that earlier.  I was just so excited at how easy it was to make him I wanted to show you the tutorial.  Anyway…

I found these two uses for Mr Turkey this week:

Is that so stinkin’ cute?  I used a little scotch tape and a toothpick on his back and he just stands up perfectly!  I was having visions of kids’ school parties or church potlucks.  Made me wish my daughter was in kindergarten just so I could make some turkey cupcakes for her.  :)

Anyway…here’s the next one, it’s a little more obvious for turkeys:

I took a 1 inch strip of Old Olive cardstock, wrapped it around the silverware & napkin and then stuck Mr. Turkey on the front.  It’s a more traditional thanksgiving thing to have a napkin ring, but he just ups the cute factor.  :)

Well, that’s all I’ve got for today.  Go punch yourself some turkeys and then come back and post a link in the comments section.

I’d love to show your turkey project on my blog, but I can’t feature you, unless you post!


  1. I made a card for SU Regional swap tomorrow (my first ever, I’m going as a guest with my demo) and I made a card using your little turkey. Of course, credit was given were credit was deserved. :-) You can see the little guy on my blog:

  2. I’m new to your blog (can’t even remember who led me here) and this is my first time to comment… :-)

    I haven’t taken a picture, yet, but I think I’ll put them on lollipops and send them to school with my boys! I also love your idea of putting them in cupcakes! So, so cute! Thanks!

  3. Melissa –
    I checked your blog and that card is adorable! I love Mr Turkey with the “gobble” stamp. How perfect!

    Jaime -
    Welcome and thank you for leaving a comment. That’s a great idea – sticking them on lollipops! I’d love to see a picture if you get one taken.

    Thanks for sharing these great ideas girls!
