When you work at a creative place like I do
sometimes you get a bag full of silly craft stuff like shown above
with the instructions
"Build a Turkey" and win a prize.
One thing though: you can only add one item!
I've been creative before creative was cool, so naturally I'm all over this!
My 1st place turkey!
For my one added item I selected a discarded children's library Thanksgiving book.
Here's how I fluffed a turkey from the stuff in the bag:
From construction paper in the bag of craft stuff
I cut out a head, feet, and wings.
I glued the turkey head to a popsicle stick
and stuck it down into the spine of the book.
I folded the center pages of the book
in a protruding manner for a turkey body,
and used the trimmed off page edges to make loopy feathers for the back.
I glued on tail feathers
cut from the book jacket
and added pom-poms everywhere it looked good,
and it looked good all over!
Lots of pom-poms!

~p.s. Her prize for creating a first place turkey at work from a bag of stuff? A "leave work early coupon". Awesome! More time for creativity!
