Baking, for real today!

I have created two crafty little monsters in my daughters.  They love to get out the glue sticks and "Mommy's pretty paper" and create!  We wanted to make a turkey day craft and treat for our wonderful teachers and bus driver that we are so thankful for! I found a very delicious pumpkin chocolate chip bread recipe that would work perfectly.

I had the girls make turkeys using the scalloped circles from the Perfect Pennants Bigz Die.  They cut small strips of card stock and Designer Series (aka Mommy's pretty) Paper to use as feathers, and then sandwiched the feathers between two scalloped circles.  We added googly eyeballs (they didn't think the StampinUP ones were big enough- ha!!), and attached the turkey to a strip of card stock that would be used as a band around the loaves, it also worked on some retired SU treat boxes that we used for the mini muffins.

We made cards, too!  This one is very similar to one Deena posted a few weeks ago, just a simple layout with some bright leaves and a wish for a Happy Thanksgiving!  Enjoy your holiday!


  • Pumpkin Pie card base
  • Whisper White card stock cut to 5 1/4" by 4"
  • Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set
  • Chocolate Chip ink
  • Autumn Accents Bigz Die
  • Old Olive, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquois, and Chocolate Chip card stock
  • Bakers Twine
  • Perfect Polka Dots and Square Lattice Embossing Folders
  • Versa Mark ink pad
  • Pursuit of Happiness stamp set
  • Summer Silhouettes stamp set
Bakers Tip:  Cut your leaves out first, and then emboss them through the Big Shot, otherwise your impressions will get smooshed! I cut out two acorns with the die, then ran one of them through the Square Lattice folder.  I trimmed the cap off and adhered it to the other acorn.
