This is so easy you’re going to LOVE IT!! Mr. Turkey …wait, no… let’s name him … hmmm……Steve. Why Steve? Because that seems like a very unlikely name for a turkey, therefore it makes me laugh. 😀 Steve is made from Post It Craft paper and I only used four partial sheets to make him!
Look at that!! Steve is 7″ tall and that’s all the paper he used. Steve, you rock! Steve was hatched from the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge. Have you seen my Lots of Pun stamps? They go well with this cartridge.
Let’s see how easy it is to assemble your very own Steve…or turkey.
Gather Your Turkey Parts
Here are all of the turkey parts you’ll need (ugh…that sounds kind of gross, huh?). Seriously though, these are all the cuts you need to make your own turkey. Now let’s assemble him!
Part 1 of Assembly
This is pretty simple! You just put the lighter color on top of the darker color. To make one stick to the other, simply peel the paper off of the back. This paper has an adhesive on the back just like the post it notes you’re used to. Best part? If you don’t get it in just the right place you can peel it back up, move it and lay it down again.
Part 2 of Assembly
You’ve got it! We’re just laying the previous things down on top of the big red cut. Then lay the other red piece down on his “face”. There are little marks that help you line it up. This is the “crimson” Post it craft paper from the Jewel tones pack. The other colors are “sand” and “cocoa” from the Earth tones pack. I peeled the backing off the main part of the turkey to lay it on the red part.
Parts 3 & 4 of Assembly
I next peeled the backing off of the red part and stuck it down onto the “golden” paper. It’s from the Jewel tones Post-it craft pack. I tell you that in case you want to use that exact color. 😉 Here my hand makes a guest appearance as it peels the backing off of the hat piece. It’s very easy to remove the backings. It’s very hard to do this and take a photo at the same time. LOL!
Well, last 2 steps. I’m just going to peel the backing off and stick it to the wall!
TA DA!!! All Done!!
That is a quick and simple decoration. If you’re new to the Cricut the Create a Critter cartridge is one of the easiest to use when it comes to layering. The layers are straightforward and simple and the end results will make you feel like a pro. 😉
