Cute Paper Turkey Step-by-Step Tutorial
You will start by taking a piece of red-colored sheet. On it, you will cut out two raindrop shapes that should be at least medium-sized. You will again cut out the same two shapes on a yellow sheet. Now, you will cut out one identical shape on orange and green sheets.
Then, on a brown chart paper, you will cut out a shape like the one shown in the picture. It should be somewhat similar to a bowling pin except for the fact that the base will be much rounder and the top a bit larger.
You will now design the raindrop shapes in such a way as shown in the picture so that it somewhat resembles a flame.
To make the eyes, you will require two white circles. For the feet that will be yellow, they will have that particular shape in which the toes at the base will be similar to a cumulus cloud but here the base will be puffy and the upper part to be flat.
Now you will cut out the snood of the turkey whose shape will also be similar to the body.
The beak will be cut on an orange sheet and will be similar to an upside-down raindrop.
You will now stick the raindrop shapes to the back of the Cute Paper Turkey using glue. There is a specific pattern in which this will be done. Beginning from the left side, the first will be red, orange, yellow, and green. Then, from the top of the right side, the order will be green, yellow, orange, and red.
In the white eyes, you cut previously, you will color in it two little black circles which will then be attached to its face.
The feet will be pasted on the side at the base.
The snood will be fastened at the left side of the beak below the eyes.
On the sides of the feathers or the large colorful flame you cut in step 1, you will jot down the things that you are thankful for.
Congratulations! You just made a Cute Paper Turkey!
