3d Turkey Cricut Home for the Holidays Fall and Winter

Hi!
   This is my version of a 3D Turkey I saw in Cricut's Project Center.  I cut this out at 4"

First cut out the various pieces.  All pieces were cut at 4".  I made two turkeys one for my house and one for a college student who won't be able to come home for the holidays.  Since I was using thin card stock for the body I cut two pieces for each turkey.
I glued the two turkey bodies together, then I glued on all the decorative pieces, lastly the dark tail feather to the yellow tail feathers.  Then I used a brown fine tip marker and "stitched" around everything. 

The split in the yellow feather goes over the tabs on the back of the body.  Since I used two bodies to make a turkey I was able to attach to the tabs as shown in the photo.  If using one body, spread one tab left and one tab right.

Add the large orange tail feathers and you have a completed turkey just like the booklet that comes with the cartridge.

This is a quick project, in the foreground are the tools I used, glue, tape gun, white gel pen, scissors, bone folder, brown fine tip maker and tweezers.  These are the extra tail feather assembled and folded in half.  When glued to the turkey and each other they give a neat 3D look. 
I went back and added googly eyes and white gel pen on the dark cardstock to add a bit of detail.
