I was looking at those Sweet Treat cups and wondering how I could use them to make some cute Thanksgiving treats to give to the kiddies at school…so I got out one of those cups, some oval and circle punches and Fall colored cardstocks and got to work and this is what I came up with…I was looking for a name for my sweet little turkey and was going to name him Tom but my girls had other ideas…they decided that our turkey should be a ‘she’ and that her name is Tiffani…isn’t she a cutie?

Tiffani is sooo easy and fun to make – firstly using my Circle Scissors Plus I cut out a 3″ Circle from Chocolate Chip cardstock. At the lower edge of that circle I punched out a 1 3/4″ Circle for my Sweet Treats Cup to go through. I used glue dots to adhere my cup to the base. I then took various colors of cardstock from the Earth Elements family – Really Rust, More Mustard, Close to Cocoa and Ruby Red – and for each ‘feather’ I made a slight punch using my circle punch so that the bottom edge of the feather would sit snug to the cup – I then took my Large Oval Punch and punched out the oval incorporating this curved edge – photos of this are below:
I used my Paper Piercing Tool to give each feather a more defined look and adhered them to my base using Mini Glue Dots. I then did the same process using Chocolate Chip cardstock and the Small Oval Punch and adhered these smaller feathers in place. For her head I punched out a 1 3/8″ Circle from Close to Cocoa and added some googly eyes that I found at a craft store – I made her beak using my Ticket Corner Punch and her waddle was made using the Horizontal Slot Punch.
Finally for the treats – I put some brown, red and orange M&M’s into the cup, tore off the sealing strip and adhered it to a circle of cardstock – to get to the candy without breaking her apart I used my Paper Piercing Tool to make holes every 1/16th of an inch in a cross – the recipient just gently pushes through to retrieve the goodies…
All of the Punches that I used to make her can be found on pgs 186-187 of the Idea Book & Catalog – and the Sweet Treats Cups and 1 3/4″ Circle Punch are on pg 7 of the Holiday Mini Catalog – you can place your online order by clicking here and then ‘shop now’ in the top right corner…and if you have any questions please contact me and I will be very happy to help.
