3-D Turkey Decoration

Hi everyone. I am very happy to be a guest designer over at My Sheri Crafts today. Her challenge is to create a Thanksgiving or Thank You project. Here is my take on her challenge.
 Here is my very first video. I just had to make a video for this cute turkey decoration... I just knew that you couldn't appreciate it from still pictures on my blog.

Here is a close up of the face of the turkey. I used a self-adhesive flat back black pearl for the eyes.

I just love how fluffy the tail is. Hard to believe the turkey folds down pretty flat for storage or mailing.

Here you can see part of the wings. So cute. :)

The little feet fold out like the wings do.

This is a top view of my little turkey.

At this point, I haven't written a tutorial, as much as I'd like to, I'm not sure if I could make a video (I don't have a tripod). If I get enough interest, I'd be happy to create a tutorial for this adorable turkey.
Please leave me a comment if you'd like to see how to make this little guy.

Until then here are the parts you'll need for one turkey:
2 yellow scalloped circles - 5"
2 orange scalloped circles - 5"

2 red scalloped circles - 5"
8 brown ovals - 4" x 4 1/2"
2 yellow leaves from Create a Critter - 1 1/2"
1 yellow triangle beak - 1 1/2" x 3/4"
2 red waddles from Create a Critter - 1 1/4"
1 scalloped square - 3 1/2" (cut in half diagonally)
oval welded to a circle (or just pieced together)
brown oval - 3/4" x 3" circle - 2 1/2"
