Turkey Shelf Sitter

Hi Stampers and Scrappers,

Here is a Shelf Sitter that I just made using that cute turkey from our new Autumn Icons set. It is a real simple design that is made from a piece of 4-6 piece of white chipboard with an easel attached to the back so that it can stand on it's own. The easel is white cardstock that is cut 3.5x11" and is scored on one side 4" and from the other side 1",2",3". You will according fold the 1 inchers, and then fold in half and glue to closed then glue to the back of your chipboard.

The front is 1" strips of BasicGrey Offbeat pattern paper glued to the front. On white cardstock I stamped the Autumn Rounder and then the turkey inside that. I used my Nestabilities to cut out the scalloped oval shape. I colored the turkey using ink pads and blending pens and added a touch of glitter here an there. Add the sentiment "sending happy little thoughts to happy up your day!" to the bottom strip then knot a ribbon above that. The final embellishments are stacked buttons with waxed linen with the ends curled.

Here is another paper pumpkin I made last night and I copied Wendy Sebesta's pumpkin with the stacked buttons. Too cute!
