Are you ready for Turkey Day? Someone sure is, making this Turkey cupcake creation! Hee hee! :) That's our inspiration for this week's Cupcake Inspirations Challenge. Hope you're ready to play along!
This ribbon turkey sure was fun to make! I punched out an Early Espresso Circle and started looping and layering my ribbons. To keep them in place, I used Sticky Strip (and lots of it!). The ribbons used here are More Mustard Grosgrain, Crushed Curry Polka Dot Grosgrain, Riding Hood Red Taffeta, Early Espresso Satin, and Chocolate Chip Grosgrain. I sure do love a card that used lots of ribbon! To make the rest of Mr. Tom, I punched smaller circle for his head, hole punched some Basic Black eyes, cut a little triangle for his beak and added an upside down heart (from the owl punch) for his gobbler. I added some little feet, using the bottom of the owl punch. I layered everything onto a Scallop Circle die cut. I feel like I could have used a little more ribbon, but I'm still pretty pleased! Nice to meet you Mr. Tom!
