Handmade Thanksgiving Turkey Card

Hi Friends and Bloggers. Can you believe this is the first ever Thanksgiving Card I have made. I usually don't make Thanksgiving Cards, but I thought since I had this very cute Turkey Sticker and the Thanksgiving Sentiment that I would play with it.

Since this card was so easy peasy to put together. I thought I would try making a custom box and belly band. I was so easy to do and I really like that you can see the card through the acetate window instead of covering up all the beauty in an envelope. This box went together so easy.

Here is how the card fits in the box. I made the belly band to fit around it and used some pretty fall stickers that came with the Turkey.
This is the card all boxed up and ready for gift giving. If you are interested in the measurements and how I did this, just leave a comment and I will put a little tutorial here. I promise it is so easy! You will love it!
