Materials Required:

2 pieces of Paper or card stock (works better with card stock but not necessary…I used paper) Scissors Markers Crayons / Colored Pencils

Step 1



Step 1 Thanksgiving Turkey Pop Up Card Making Craft - Turkeys Beak Opens and Closes



Fold a piece of paper in half.

Step 2



Step 2 Thanksgiving Turkey Pop Up Card Making Craft - Turkeys Beak Opens and Closes



Cut a slit about an inch long in the middle of the folded side of the piece of paper.

Step 3



Step 3 Thanksgiving Turkey Pop Up Card Making Craft - Turkeys Beak Opens and Closes



Now fold a corner to the left and to the right at the slit (like shown above).

Step 4



Step 4 Thanksgiving Turkey Pop Up Card Making Craft - Turkeys Beak Opens and Closes



This part is hard to illustrate, but fold the paper in the opposite direction and push the crease inwards.

Step 5



Step 5 Thanksgiving Turkey Pop Up Card Making Craft - Turkeys Beak Opens and Closes



You might have to push the paper in different direction for the Turkey’s beak to start to look like this (shown above).

Step 6



Step 6 Thanksgiving Turkey Pop Up Card Making Craft - Turkeys Beak Opens and Closes



After being able to get the piece of paper to look like the step above, then turn the paper upside down and glue everything (BUT  DON”T GLUE THE BEAK).  Then glue it to the 2nd piece of paper (BUT DON’T GLUE THE BEAK DOWN).

Step 7



Step 7 Thanksgiving Turkey Pop Up Card Making Craft - Turkeys Beak Opens and Closes



After the glue dries….start drawing the turkey’s face. First draw it in pencil … later outline in marker. Draw the turkey’s beak first. A triangle on top of the slit, and a triangle on the bottom of the slit. Also draw 2 circles above the top triangle (don’t draw over the beak though). This also looks like a sideways number ‘8’.

Step 8

Now draw a bunch of feathers on the turkey…they sort of look like sideways letter ‘U’s

Step 10



Step 10 Thanksgiving Turkey Pop Up Card Making Craft - Turkeys Beak Opens and Closes



Draw the turkey’s ’snood’ (the thing that hangs down over the turkey’s beak. The snood sort of looks like a letter ‘U’ shape too.

Step 11



Step 11 Thanksgiving Turkey Pop Up Card Making Craft - Turkeys Beak Opens and Closes



Now draw the turkey’s feet … I see a ‘3’ in the right foot and a backwards ‘3’ in the left foot…try to visualize these to draw them easier. Also draw 2 nostrils in the turkey’s beak.

Step 12



Finished Black and White Thanksgiving Turkey Pop Up Card Making Craft - Turkeys Beak Opens and Closes



When you open and close this Thanksgiving card, you should see the beak open like this. If you want to, write ‘Gobble Gobble’ inside the Turkey’s mouth or write ‘Happy Turkey Day’ or ‘Happy Thanksgiving’ in the Turkey’s mouth. Or just leave it blank.
