Turkey Table Manners

Hi Stampers!

Today I want to share with you my design team project for The Cutting Cafe! This week we are getting ready to prepare for Thanksgiving and Regina asked us to showcase a few of her super cute Thanksgiving files. Now you know me... I usually can't just pick one because they are too cute and today is no different - LOL!

I wanted to make a cute wall hanging for my Thanksgiving decor. Since this Holiday is all about family, being thankful for all the blessings in your life, good food and family gatherings ... I thought it would be fun to make a sign to remind of us of good table manners.... turkey style!

That super cute Turkey is made by paper piecing the turkey pieces from Regina's Turkey Shaped Card. The only thing I did different was adding different eyes. The "Did Someone Say Turkey" sentiment is from the Thanksgiving Day printable stamp set.

To make the bottom part of my wall hanging I used the Gobble Shaped word card and matching sentiment. Instead of making a folded card - I just cut the card in half and paper pieced the letters on top. I used some hemp twine to make it hang from the top piece.

Most of the designer papers that I used are from the Authentique Paper pack called Thankful.
My "Turkey Table Manners" are computer generated.

Here are close up pictures of the top half and the bottom half so you can get a better look!

And here is a better look at the Bottom Half!

I hope you enjoyed my project today as much I wall enjoy it hanging on my wall :)

Be sure to visit The Cutting Cafe Blog and see what my fellow design team members created for an extra blast of inspiration!! Regina also gives away prizes so be sure and leave a comment while you are there!

Have a great day all!
