Give Thanks Mini Album

You know me and you know I love making mini albums especially when I can make them a bit unexpected! 
This little book is filled with surprises!
Supplies you will need to complete the kit
Foam tape or pop dots
chalk pad or any distressing ink for the edges of the pieces
large hole punch
KIT for the project from Girlfriends
The cover is easy...Take the corresponding paper, trace the shape from the book in the kit, cut out, ink edges and glue to the cover of the book.  Next add the strip of corrugated paper (ink edges of course), put together the turkey (add a little dimension by putting some foam tape or a pop dot under the top of the leg), add the title.

Cut the round page out of the appropriate paper.  I think it is traced there but if it is not I have included patterns. Put the clock together...I hand wrote the numbers and the tag.  Put the Turkey legs together and using a brad attatch them to the page in the center.

The stripe is a pocket.  You will cut out the scallop and then cut it to fit the page.  The little scalloped embellishment is on one of the little cards in the kit.
