Thanksgiving Turkey Using Designer Rosette Die

Looking for Thanksgiving projects? 


I saw this turkey on Tim Holtz's blog and just had to make it with Stampin' Up! materials.  It gave me a chance to use my Designer Rosette Bigz XL die.  You can change the sizes of the rosettes by cutting your paper strips in different widths.  To make the three different sizes for this project, I cut the strips 1 1/2" x 12", 1 5/8" by 12" and 2" x 12".  You'll need two strips of each size to make one rosette.  I used the Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series Paper which works for both fall and Halloween.


I used the pointed end of the rosette for the turkey.  You can see how the scalloped end looks on this Christmas tree that I made.


For the body of the turkey, I glued two pieces of cardstock together and cut out the pattern provided by Tim.  I cut a slit in the scallop circle in the center of the rosette and added a little glue to hold the turkey body in place. 


I sponged the rosettes before they were assembled.  It was much easier to add shading with Soft Suede classic ink when the paper was still flat.  Hot glue seems to be the best way to glue the rosettes to each other.

While you can't see it in the picture, I used another scallop circle at the bottom to make a stand for my quirky turkey. 

Have fun making these turkeys for your Thanksgiving celebration.  It's quick and easy thanks to the Big Shot and Stampin' Up!'s exclusive Designer Rosette Bigz XL die.

I used the turkey template on Tim Holtz' blog and kept it the same size. The size of the strips to make the rosettes is listed in the first paragraph. Have fun making your turkey!
