Gobble Gobble Gift Bag

Here's a cute gift bag you can make for a teacher or special friend for Thanksgiving using the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  I filled the bag with candy corn and yummy chocolate popcorn I found in the candy aisle at Walmart.  I really want to make these pumpkin snickerdoodles for the next one.

Here are the dimensions, supplies and assembly instructions:
·        Chocolate Bag – 6 ½” Gift Bag  [font layer + shift < 3 >]
·        Chocolate Body* – 4” Scalloped Oval [fourth row, second from left]
·        Desert Sand Collar* – 2 ¾” Scalloped Oval [fourth row, second from left]
·        Chocolate Head* – 3” Egg [fourth row, fourth from right]
·        White Daisy Eyes – cut 2, ½” Ovals [second row, second from left]
·        Goldrush Beak – 1” Banner [third row, second from right]
·        Cranberry Waddle – 1 ½” Uneven Heart [bottom row, second from right + Shift]
·        Honey Feet – cut 2, 1” Skinny Heart [second row, fourth from right + Shift]
·        Feathers – One in each color, 1 ¾” Skinny Oval [top row, second from left]                                            Suggestions: Barn Red, Smokey Plum, New England Ivy, Honey, Autumn Terracota.
Also need
·        2 black Bigger Brads
·        6” Baker’s Twine
·        Liquid Glass, or other adhesive (I like this because it dries quickly)
·        Piercing Tool
·        Chocolate Ink
·        Sponge
Sponge (*) pieces in Chocolate Ink.  Assemble turkey using Liquid Glass or similar adhesive.  Cut about 1/2" off bottom of Turkey body before attaching to the assembled gift bag, otherwise he won't sit up.
