Thankful turkey!

   Hello!  Only one little week til Thanksgiving!!  Yay and yum!! I am sooo excited!!  I am also excited because I received a really fun package in the mail yesterday!!  I signed up for the I love to create with Connie and Mary holiday edition recently!!  Talk about a fun thing!  They posted oodles of awesome holiday projects and ideas.  There were also lots of fun challenges which I participated in to spark my own creativity.  As a result I was one of four lucky winners of a prize from the wonderful Connie and Mary! (Thank you much-ly ladies!!)   I won a gift certificate to (drum roll please!!!!) Stampin Up!!!  My favorite place of all time!  One of the things I purchased with my GC was the Two Tags Big Shot die and guess arrived yesterday!!!  So, I bet you cannot guess what my project today uses! LOL  Take a look:

I made a little basket using one of the two tags!  I made the basket part from a 5"x 5" square and added it the the front of the tag.  I made turkey feathers from the scallop circle punch and the owl from the Two Step Owl punch.  I added the body on with a pop dot and added some trim to dress the whole thing up!
View from the top.  It holds the perfect amount of candy for an after dinner snack or two!

Side view.

The little banner uses a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I stamped it, cut  it out and sponged it.  I used the 1" Square punch to cut out the triangles from each end.  I put it under the owl to make him look like he is perched on top of it.  This project went together pretty quickly and would make a super little gift for someone!  I love this die and cannot wait to play with it more!!  Lots and lots of possibilities here!

Have a great Thursday!  Do something stamp-y!  It will make your day! See you soonest! :)

This is so cute and I love how you are already thinking 'out of the box' (well, I guess it's actually in the box this time:) with this new die!
