Instructions:

  1. First, prepare your “gobble, gobble” mix. If you’re making your own batch of munchies, I recommend using the original Chex mix recipe found here on their website (http://www.chex.com/Recipes/RecipeView.aspx?RecipeId=6709). I use the oven preparation version. Otherwise, you’ll need a 15oz. bag of the store-bought version. Place your party mix in a medium bowl and add nuts, peanut butter flavored candies (such as Reece’s Pieces) and candy corn. The measurements aren’t exact, but 1 cup of each should be sufficient.  Sometimes I’ll even add a cup or two of Honey Nut Cheerios.

  2. After mixing so the candy pieces are distributed evenly, you can fill your jars.  One batch will fill 3 quart-sized canning jars.  I prefer to use wide-mouthed jars making it easier for your recipient to snack from.  Add the seal and tighten the rim before tying on extra wide lace ribbon.

  3. To create your turkey embellishment for the front of the jar, you’ll need to use your Fuse Creativity System along with Medium Design Set 0108 to create some letterpressed leaves using brown ink on cardstock. Clip the stems off of the leaves, and then overlap them as shown to create the base for the turkey’s fan of feathers.

  4. Run a variety of paper scraps through your Paper Crimper, then punch using your Oval ‘N Oval Squeeze Punch. You’ll need a total of 5. If you need color inspiration, you might find Pantone’s Fall 2012 Fashion Color Report to be a helpful guide.

  5. Use glue dots to adhere the 5 punched ovals to the back of the layered leaves.

  6. Hand-cut a turkey head from light brown cardstock. You’ll notice the head resembles the shape of a wooden kitchen spoon.  Add character to the turkey by cutting a beak, waddle and adding blush to the cheeks and eyes with marker. Define the outline of the turkey by inking the edges with dark brown ink. Embellish the neck with a single strand of brown baker’s twine tied into a bow.

  7. Adhere turkey head to feather fan using dimensional foam adhesive. Then adhere to the front of the canning jar using glue dots.

  8. Stamp “happy thanksgiving” from the Holiday Hooplah Repositionable Stamp Set onto cardstock using a coordinating color of ink. Then adhere to canning jar below your feathered friend.
