Turkey Napkin Holder

 My husband has been asking me for weeks to make a cool paper turkey, so I took advantage of some weekend craft time to do just that. I used this cute turkey file from SVG Cuts Thanksgiving Dinner kit and decided it would be cool as a napkin holder for the dinner table, so I just had to make a base for the napkins to fit in and to give more stability to the turkey.


To make the base I just measured two strips of chipboard using a napkin as my guide, then cut two end pieces that I folded and glued together.
I glued the small flaps to the outside of the box so the napkins wouldn't get snagged on them, and then I covered the outside with some brown cardstock.






I also embossed his head with Cuttlebug's mesh embossing folder and I curled out the feathers on the turkey to make it more 3-D.




My husband was really impressed with how it turned out, so that made me smile.
