Paper Bag Turkey

A few years back, Family Fun had a cute Thanksgiving project using a brown paper grocery bag as the body of a turkey and it was filled with popcorn for munching. Well, that took a lot of popcorn to fill that grocery bag and no one really wanted popcorn before our Thanksgiving meal. So last year when I found some little silver trays at the Dollar Tree, I decided to make a smaller version and fill it with candy, for after dinner.

The body is a lunch bag and the legs are two small "parts" bags from Ace hardware (I just turned them inside out to hide the markings). The paper frill for the legs was cut using George and Basic Shapes, the leafy greens for the platter is a leaf from Pooh and Friends and the carrot curls are paper strips rolled with a quilling tool.
