Turkey Place Cards

Welcome to my Thanksgiving table, We R Memory fans! Wendy Antenucci here today.  I wanted to make place cards for my table to dress things up and with the help of a few amazing We R Memory Keepers tools that has been achieved!

I began my place cards using the 1-2-3 Punch Board to create boxes which I filled with some goodies for the kids.  I wanted to use my 6×6 paper pads so my box dimensions were 1¾ inches, perfect for little treats and the perfect size to hold the mini alpha punch board letters.  I used hot glue to hold the sides of my boxes together and then I adhered the letters to the outside of the box.

The next part of my project was using the pom pom maker, I chose the small size to create fluffy pom poms for the top of my boxes.  I began my project with the idea of creating some leaves and attaching a tag, but the pom poms were calling for more!

I had a brain storm to create a rosette to use as a turkey tail, and it worked!  I used my 6×6 paper pad and my Fringe & Score board to make the rosette.  I then cut the 6×6 folded strips into 3 pieces to give me the tails of my turkeys.  Using the staple board I stapled one end of the tail and fanned out the other side, then attached this to the pom poms.

Next my turkeys needed eyes; using the wide eyelets in white and beige colors I glued these onto the pom poms and then added in small orange triangles for the beaks.  Black glitter glue was the final touches for the eyes.
