Steps:

  1. Mark your construction paper at 1 inch increments for strip width so you have six strips per candy container. You can make make them as long as you want. The longer you make them, the bigger the candy container. I used the standard 8" width of the construction paper.

  5. Using the ruler, find the very center of a strip and mark it with a pen. Stack the rest of the strips using the middle guide to create a circle. You will use the middle guide to staple them all together.

  15. In order to make the turkey, follow the same steps as above, but secure all but the three last strips closed. These will be its tail.

  17. Cut an extra strip for the turkey head. Draw a guide in order to cut the corners off, then make two marks on either side to fold to create a turkey head shape.
