Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #7

Another great Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge! And #7!!! Don't you just love these??? This week the movie chosen was A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving! This movie is a MUST in our home! Even though my girls are grown, they still watch it!

Problem --- no Charlie Brown stamps...what to do?

I follow a great blog, The Stampin' Academy. And a while ago, Angie posted a fun little video tutorial how to use your punches to create a little turkey! It was pretty easy, but small. So, I decided to use my BIGGER punches and make my own!

I used my giga scallop circle punch and a giga circle punch by Marvy, as well as a 2" circle punch by Fiskars. I cut a 2" square and cut it down to 1¾" for the hat, and used what I trimmed off to make the brim of the hat. I also used the boho blossoms punch from Stampin' Up! to create the feet and beak. And I found this pack of wiggle eyes at Dollar Tree, and aren't they cute!

I had so much fun figuring the turkey out --- and I'm going to make some more of the bigger version of the turkey for my dinner table Thursday. Maybe placecards?

Give Thanks card details:
Stamps: Tall Oaks (Verve)
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, More Mustard, Really Rust, Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Basic Black (SU!)
