Turkey Favor Tins

The digital cut file for this project is available for purchase through my Etsy shop.

This is a project I shared last year, but it's such a cute project for Thanksgiving, I thought I would repost it. When I made these last year, I didn't know how to make files for other digital cutters, but now I do! So later, I will also be sharing the cutter file so you can make your own.

Thanksgiving will be here soon and this is a great little project that is perfect for the big day. I remember when I was little, my mom would always help me make a cute favor to put on the table by each plate. I still enjoy making favors for everyone and here is what I will be making this year-Turkey Favor Tins.
 Here is what you'll need to make them:
Cardstock (I used 8 different colors)
Googly Eyes
Foam Sticky Tabs
Favor Tins (I got mine at Michaels in the wedding section)
Distress Ink

First, you'll need to cut out all the pieces. I used my digital cutter, but most of the shapes are pretty simple and can be cut by hand (there's a printable template at the bottom).
After everything is cut, distress the edges.
Next, assemble and glue the face and feathers.
 Use the foam tabs to attach a circle to the lid and also the head and feet.
Glue the feathers to the back of the tin. Make sure when you stand it up, the edges of the outside feathers touch at the bottom. This keeps your tin from rolling.
 Attach the other circle to the back of the tin over the feathers.
 Fill with some tasty treats
 and put on the lid.
Oh, so cute! Imagine a whole table of these little guys - how fun and festive.
