LeNae's Tip: There are enough supplies included in this bundle to make 2 identical boxes. Lightly sand the Brad Buddies to give added detail.



  1. Assemble box. Apply glue to one side of the box at the time and place the rust paper over the area. Use scissors to cut the paper even with the box sides. Repeat for the 3 remaining sides.
  2. Cut 1 wide strips of striped paper and mat with brown cardstock, leaving 1/16 wide borders. Use the sanding block to lightly sand the turkeys feathers and use the pen to draw in eyes. Secure the turkey to one of the strips using both adhesive and the golden heart brad for the beak. Glue the border with the turkey to the front side of the box and use scissors to trim even with the box sides. Glue the border pieces to the 3 remaining sides.
  3. Apply glue to one flap and cover with striped paper. Use the knife to cut the slit at the center and scissors to cut the paper even with the flap edges. Secure the Gobble Brad Buddy to the front of the flap. Fold flaps and embellish the handle with ribbons. Lightly sand the letters only on the Give Thanks Brad Buddy tag and hang from the handle with thin ribbon.
