Blogging Friends Blog Hop-November Thanksgivning

  Welcome to the first of the Month and the Blogging Friends Blog Hop for November!!!! Yeah- seriously cannot believe it is a month since the last Blog Hop.  Wow.

    For my Blog Hop Share I wanted to do a 3-D and I wanted to make a Thanksgiving inspired project.  I had my Stamp Set that goes with the Wreath Kit sitting on my desk and I though-Feathers!  Yes I want to use feathers-alas these feathers don't have matching dies so..shhhh I used my Brother Scan n' Cut, I know not Stampin' Up! but heck we don't sell it so it's okay.  The feathers cut great and it was so much faster then using paper snips.

 Do you love my acorn turkey?  Oh my he is so adorable he even made my husband use the word cute-he was like "Wow that's really cute, I like that it's a turkey, yet an acorn , yet a face... I'm not sure what that though process was but he was happy saying it so yeah it's cute.
 Here is a side view the tags and the die for the word eat came in the Cutie Pie box set as did the scalloped edge.  The other word that comes in the box is ME.  ummm-yeah not going to say any more. 

The ribbon tied around the box keeps the opening tight.  It is a clasping sort of die cut on the bottom.  There are a ton of dies in this set and super useful ones too.  The grateful comes from a different set though.  All the supplies will be below the link for the next blog on the hop.  The little googlie eyes are discontinued but if you don't have any in your stash I'm sure you can find somewhere to pick some up.

The only ink I used was Soft Suede and on the acorn I inked it stamped off and then inked just the top of the acorn then stamped it.  I cut that out with paper snips but I could have done with scan and cut or with the acorn punch.  I don't have the acorn punch but I might need it now... because these are so cute! I might make them for Thanksgiving favors!!!!

  Thank You for visiting my blog today!  Please leave me a comment below and tell me what you think of my Turkey Acorn Face Box!  As my loquacious husband so described him.  Please travel on to the next blog and see what my Blogging Friends have made to share with you!  Oh and Have a Grateful Thanksgiving!
