Here is a Punch Art Curvy Keepsakes Turkey Box just in time for Thanksgiving! It is fairly easy with a printout to use for the front of the Turkey and the wings. The print out uses MDS Harvest of Thanks stamp brush set which is enlarged to fit the size of the Curvy Keepsakes box.

1. Cut your Chocolate Chip card stock in half: two 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ pieces. Make your Big Shot sandwich: Magnetic Platform (OR Multipurpose Platform with tabs closed), cutting plate, both pieces of card stock-stacked, Curvy Keepsake Box Die, top cutting plate. Run thought Big Shot. Watch this VIDEO for more details on making a Basic Curvy Keepsake Box. Fold up and close your Box. It makes it easier to add the pieces in the correct position.
2. Print up the Turkey Body and Wings page onto Whisper White card stock or 24 pound white printer paper. (Printer paper used here.) Cut out the Turkey Bodies. Lay the Curvy Box on its side so the handle is parallel to the table. Lay one Turkey Body under the Curvy Box in the position you want it. Draw a line where the Turkey Body meets the Curvy Box. Fold on the line you drew. Add a 1/4″ tab to add adhesive. (I also cut a “V” shape in the center of the line to reduce bulk when adding the Turkey body to the Box.) Use Tombow Glue to glue the very front part of the Turkey Body together – from the head to in front of the feet. Add Tombow to one of Body Flaps and overlap the other Turkey Body flaps. Add Tombow Glue to the other flap and attach it to the Box (which is now standing upright) so the Turkey feet are at least close to touching your table. Use your Bone Folder between the Turkey Body pieces to make sure the Tombow Glue is on the Curvy Box. Yipee! The hard part is done!
3. Using the scraps from your Curvy Box cut out 4 small feathers and 8 large feathers. You can still have the card stock in two layers – so cut out 2 small feathers and 4 large feathers on the doubled card stock. You can sponge the edges of your feathers if desired. I forgot, but wished I would have. Half the feathers use the front of the feather, the other half you see the back – so sponge accordingly.
4. Use either Tombow or Glue Dots to attach the 4 small feather together in a fan shape. Attach in the position you want on the back of the Turkey. Add a few Dimemsionals to the back of the small feather fan. Now attach the large feathers in a fan shape with Tombow or Glue Dots. Attach to the small feather fan using the Dimensionals and either Glue Dots or Tombow Glue.
5. Now cut out your Turkey wings and attach them to the sides of your Turkey Box. Put your Turkey Box on display!
Happy Thanksgiving Crafting!
