Welcome to Scrappy and Piggy and the CookingWithCricut.com “Giving Thanks” Blog Hop! If you've come from visiting Holly at http://ribbonsandglue.blogspot.com you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to hop along with us, you can go to CookingWithCricut.com and start at the beginning.
Today’s hop is all about Thanksgiving decorations – for your home and table. I made this crazy looking Turkey Treat Box using the Sweet Treats Boxes cartridge.
I saw a woman that used this box to make the birds from Angry Birds (they looked awesome) and I thought well if you can use it to make birds, you can use it to make a turkey. This box is actually the ice cream cone/cupcake box. I just cut the 2 top pieces and I cut them at 10.5 inches. This is my first time to use this cartridge and the scoring can be a little tricky. Scotch tape came in really handy! After I had my turkey body put together, I cut the feather layer from Create A Critter. I trimmed off the feet and attached them to the bottom of the box, then I kind of folded the feathers around the back of the box. For the face I punched some black circles and added some large wiggly eyes. I cut the beak and the turkey wobbly thingy from Animal Kingdom. I hope you have enjoyed my turkey box.
