Gobble Gobble!

Every year I am in charge of the Turkey Day place cards. I was inspired by a magazine picture of wine corks that were made into turkey place cards. I, however, decided to put my own spin on them using my favorite things: Champagne and Cupcakes! I just happen to have 8 champagne corks (what a lush) for round and plump little turkey bodies and I happen to have cupcake liners in every color! I whipped out my hot glue gun and the googley eyes and went to town!  The magazine showed toothpicks, but I tried that and decided to go with some decorative pins after I broke the toothpick trying to jam it in the cork.  The flags were made from a banner die cut which was folded and glued around the pin. These actually are really easy and fast to make! Thanks for looking!

I would recommend using a different size corks-as they give the turkeys personality! The cupcake liners were folded and glued together first and then attached to the turkey body.  Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!
