Bosskut Distressed Turkey Napkin Holder
Thanksgiving is 2 weeks from now and I am making a few crafts for the celebration. I really enjoy using this turkey pattern designed by Lisa Schmidt for Bosskut. The pattern comes with a jpg file, which you can make a print n cut or cut by hand. All patterns come in digital downloads which contain all of the following formats: AI, WPC, GSD, Vector PDF and a jpg for reference.

This is an easy and fast project to make! In Funtime software: Import the jpg Turkey pattern. Using the magic wand feature or outline feature, make an outline. Make a mirror copy and move down about 2 inches. You will then draw a rectangle and add the the kiss cut lines for the crease to fold them. I cut my holder using clear craft plastic. I used the 007 wgt for mine.
I cut 2 of the outline base and the rectangle one in the craft plastic . My settings on my BossKut Gazelle were 2 for speed, 4 for force. I used sookwang double sided adhesive to attached this project together. After removing those, I then cut the same in cardstock to line the inside. Attach the rectangle base to each side of the plastic and then tape the liner into place. I then printed and cut 2 of the distressed turkey patterns. Tape these to the front and back outsides. I colored on my turkey with my Copic markers but you can just use the printed version. Project completed and ready for napkins! Sure to be a hit with my Grandchildren on Thanksgiving Day.
