Cut & fold rosettes
To create an 8" rosette, cut 3 pieces of 4" x 10" x 1/2" paper. Score every 3/4" across the length of the papers. Attach 3 pieces together, creating a long piece. Accordion fold the paper.
To create a 5" rosette, cut 2 pieces of 2 1/2" x 10" paper. Score every 3/4" across the length of the papers. Attach 2 pieces together, creating one long piece. Accordion fold the paper.
If desired, cut simple triangle or diamond shapes while the paper is still accordion folded to create a decorative edge. Join the ends of each rosette together with hot glue creating a circle. Secure the circles by cutting out 4, 2" circles of matching paper and attaching 1 to the front and back of each rosette.
Adhere the medium rosette to the largest rosette, flush at the bottom.
From the French Roast cardstock, cut a 3" circle and a 2" circle. Set aside.
Cut and score cardstock
From the French Roast cardstock, cut a 3" x 12" strip. Score the cut strip at the following measurements: 2", 6" and 11". Fold the paper strip at the scored lines to create an easel for the finished turkey.
Adhere turkey to easel
Set the rosette turkey inside the easel. Adhere the easel on the backside, and tuck the front side underneath the first rosette and adhere.
Adhere the cut 3" circle to the rosette, flush with the bottom. Adhere the cut 2" circle overlapping the 3" circle.
Use paper punches, templates or an electronic cutting machine to create the following shapes: 2 yellow heart shapes, 1 yellow square shape cut in half diagonally and 1 red heart shape cut in half.
Adhere shapes & eyes
Adhere cut red heart shape, cut yellow square and 2 wiggle eyes to the center of the 2" circle.
Adhere 2 yellow hearts to bottom of 3" circle.
