Autumn Turkey Tag

Used Cricut to make the Autumn Turkey, wiggle eyes, a wobble, Die-Namics Tag dies, poppy stamps/die, inking the edges, retrofitted the sentiment with calligraphy 'gobble' in place of 'peep', felt for hat, felt for flowers, ribbon and used Cricut to make Nov calendar on back of tag.

Used mostly scraps. Used felt with iron-on backing for hat. Used foam adhesive for dimension. Used a wobble on back of Turkey for playful action; so my gobble is a wobblin'.
