Punch Art Recipe Swap

Good morning, All!

Today I will show you my page for the 6x6" Punch Art Page swap. I had to make 37 of these, and for some reason this is taking so much longer than the 42 pages I made last year. Too many punches and folds? I don't know - shoot me now!!

Other than the punching, which is shown on the punch sheet, cut out a 3/4" square of Basic Black and trim to create the top hat (or punch out if you have this punch size (retired)). Small circles are created with the large and small punch on the Crop-o-dile.

The turkey feathers are created by:

1. Using a scallop circle punch-out, fold 5 scallops down in a straight line.

2. Flip scallop piece over and fold in half perpendicular to the straight fold in (1). This is your "center line".

3. Flip over again, and fold each flap down so it meets the center line.

4. You may want to apply a spot of Tombo Multipurpose glue to keep the feathers folded down.

Paper: Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Riding Hood Red, Basic Black, Regals Collection DSP; Accessories: Scallop Circle punch, 1-1/4" Circle punch, 3/4" Circle punch, Boho Blossom punch, Crop-o-dile.

Thanks for stopping by!

Fabulous job! What detail and I think they would be great for Thanksgiving dinner. Thankfully I wouldn't need to make 37!
