Bird Bonanza/Fantabulous Cricut Design Team Challenge #34
I am so excited to be a part of the design team for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. The challenge this week is called Bird Bonanza and you must make a project that has something to do with a bird and includes a cricut cut somewhere on your project. Be sure to check the blog out and enter the challenge to play along here: http://fantabulouscricut.blogspot.com/
For my project, I made these turkey treats for Kaylee's class for Thanksgiving.
I used the Create a Critter Cartridge to cut the turkeys. I cut the front layers and back layers separately and did not connect them. This way, you can put the treat in the middle for the body of the turkey. To spruce the turkey up, I added some google eyes and tiny bow ties and used a glitter gel pen on the top of the red feathers and the turkeys face and also used some a white opaque pen to make faux stitching lines on the orange wings. I used the Little Debbie Pinwheel treats, since they are brown and worked for the turkey color, but you could use any circle shaped cake that you would like. (The little bowties came from the Walmart Craft department, you get 6 in a pack for $1.97 if you are interested in getting some of them)
I used hot glue to attach the cake to the turkey body. This way they can be securely attached, but the kids can also still open the side of the pack and not mess up the turkeys when they get the cakes out.
I made 24 of these total. I sometimes have people ask how I transport the items I make, so I thought I would show you. I stacked 12 of these into a box, so there will be two boxes to carry into Kaylee's school.
