Paper Twist Thanksgiving Craft

You know, I love Thanksgiving. I love the thought behind it, the gathering of friends and family, the delicious food, and the leftovers. But (you knew that was coming, right?), I'm not too hot on decorating for Thanksgiving. I just don't have the best ideas or the inspiration that I feel for other holidays. 
Recently, I was gifted with a horde or crafting leftovers (Thanks, Linda!!) , which included a large supply paper twist. I've never used it before, but I love the look of it. I was also gifted some paper twist doll making books...yay!! This pilgrim-ish doll above is my first attempt. Not too bad, if I do say so myself!! 
Yup, I think I'll be doing plenty more of this!!

  12. I've never used paper twist before, either. Judging by what you've done with it, though, I need to give it a try! This is amazing - and perfect for Thanksgiving!!!

  13. Absolutely adorable. And I agree with the others, she needs a whole colony to join her.
