First project for CraftJunkieToo and Episode 17 - Turkey Day

Hi Crafters! Well, today is a REALLY special day! I have my first project post as a design team member for CJToo!

Since I normally do a video on Saturday, I thought I would combine the two this week. I hope you enjoy!

Today we are making some Thanksgiving Holiday decorations. I wanted to create a really fun centerpiece for my table and thought the turkey from Create a Critter was just perfect! And then I thought, hum...I need some napkin holders also! So I created those with the same cut from Create a Critter.

I think they turned out so darn cute, I hope you feel the same way!

They were very simple to make, and since I used my Imagine this week...there isn't a gypsy file (the gypsy doesn't communicate with the Imagine yet), but I think you can all make this project with no trouble at all! are the videos explaining how to assemble this fun project..

I decided to add the Gobble Gobble (also from the Create a Critter cartridge) after I finished the video. It was very simple, I cut the Gobble Gobble 2 times once at 2 1/2 inches and once at 2 inches.

Since the phrase doesn't have a layer, I created my own using the idea shared by CJtoo a few weeks ago on her site. It was VERY easy! I also attached a dowel stick to the back of the word phrase so it would stick out of the turkey table decoration. I did end up putting styrofoam inside the box of the turkey table decoration so I had something to stick the sign into.

I hope you have enjoyed this project!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
