Turkey Purses?

Aren't these little turkey treats adorable? I do bookkeeping part-time for our local County Co-op & Farm Store. Not only does this Co-op sell fresh veggies and baked goods but they also have a store front that includes a bakery and they allow local people like me to sell on consignment. I am very successful in selling some of my homemade cards and each time we have an upcoming holiday, I create items to sell such as these. Sunday I spent the day making round two of these turkey treats as my first round sold out.

I used the now retired Purse Die to create these cuties by cutting off the top flap and of course not adding the purse handle:

The sentiment is from the Paisley's & Posies stamp set.

And the feathers are from the retired Feather Framelits Dies and the Four Feathers stamp set. I filled the 2" Cello Bags with carmels. The feathers were a little time-consuming to stamp and cut but once I got going production style, things came together quite quickly. 

Supplies Used:
  • Body: Purse Die with flap cut off using Chocolate Chip Cardstock.
  • Feathers: Four Feathers stamp set. Peekaboo Peach, Daffodil Delight & Chocolate Chip Inks & Cardstocks. 1" Circle Punch on the back of the leaves to cover the ends of the feathers.
  • Head: 1-1/2" Circle Punch, Owl Punch for the eyes. Tree Builder Punch for the wattle using Peekaboo Peach Cardstock and the nose was hand-cut with Daffodil Delight Cardstock. Once the head is assembled, glue in place with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Banner: Stamp the sentiment from the Paisleys & Posies stamp set using Peekaboo Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Cut notches on each end and glue in place with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Fill with candies in a cello bag!
