Herbie's 1st Thanksgiving

The other day I saw the funniest little Thanksgiving bib and we picked it up for my guy's grandson's 1st Thanksgiving. You can't just send the bib, you have to send along a card so I made him a box card on a smaller scale.

 Here's a side view:

The other side view:

I put an action wobble on the turkey:

For anyone who has made a card in a box before, this one is a little smaller here are the measurements:

Cut cardstock to 7 1/2"x9 1/4". Score at 2 1/8", 4 1/4", 6 3/8" and 8 1/2". Rotate the cardstock to the left.Cutoff 2". Cut the 2" strip at 3 5/8" and cut in half lengthwise as above for the inside tabs. On the card base, score at 2 1/2" and cut down to the score lines. Assemble as usual.

DSP sizes are as follows:
5. 1/4" x 2" - one patterned and one white/neutral for the back.
1 7/8" x 2 1/4" - six of these.
2 3/4" x 1 7/8" - 3 of these.

Turkey, "Gobble, Gobble" and pumpkins cut from Cricut's Create a Critter cartridge.
Sentiment from a stamp set I have had for a few years from My Craft Spot's, "Happy Thanksgiving" set.
Scrolled bling is from Zva Creative.
Other bling from Imaginisce.
Little birds from Plum Purdy.
Leaves are a McGill punch.
