If you are looking for a Thanksgiving favor with a candy treat for your dinner table or maybe a little gift for someone, here is a bag of M&M’s made into a Thanksgiving turkey! I filled a Stampin’ Up! Cellophane 4″ x 6″ Bag with candy and tied the top with the Tangelo Twist 3/8″ Satin Stitched Ribbon. I cut off about one inch of the top of the bag and then adhered the turkey head (1 3/4″ Circle Punch) with SNAIL Adhesive. Make the turkey facial features however you like, but I used the Owl Punch for the eyes and just colored with a black marker. The beak is the tip of the Triangle Punch and the wattle is made with the wing on the Bird Punch but trimmed down a little more evenly. You don’t need punches for any of these pieces, just cut them yourself. For the turkey feathers, I just punched with the Scallop Oval Punch. You could also use Oval Punches, and you could emboss the feathers with an embossing folder. You could also use designer paper for a little more interest and varied colors. So many options!
