With Thanksgiving around the corner I wanted to share a really fun and simple holiday craft with you. These cute pine cone turkeys are perfect for table top, mantle or anywhere!

The awesome creative team over at Martha Stewart sent me this brand new Circle Edge Punch to give a test drive before the November 13th release date.

Lets’s talk turkey shall we?!

As soon as I accepted to do the review of this punch I pondered how I could create something super cute, creative & memorable.

I love whimsical designs that can be enjoyed by both kids and adults. Must come from my background as a textile & graphic designer for Disney…

A few years ago my daughter brought home the cutest pine cone turkey that she had made at school. It had feathers and google eyes. It was very pretty on the Thanksgiving table.

It inspired me to come up with this!

Using the awesome, simple to use Circle Edge Punch ~ it was fun to create all different shapes for my turkey.

What I love about this punch is that you can easily vary the diameters of your circles.

Punch circular borders in 7 sizes from paper up to 12 inches. I can’t wait to see Martha Stewart’s demo tomorrow on
