I started by cutting out a turkey with the gold vinyl. Make sure it will fit in the frame with some room on the sides. Be sure to put the glitter side down on the mat and set your machine at the vinyl cut setting.

While the frame is apart, mine had a place to put a ribbon in the top. I swapped mine out for baker’s twine.

I taped my ends to make it easier to string the holes. It would also be easy to just tie the twine around the top of the frame.

Now to the ironing. Preheat the fabric by ironing for 10 seconds. Take the fabric cut out for the frame and place the turkey on the fabric in the middle with the liner still on. Then cover it with another piece of fabric. Iron on the turkey for 30 seconds. Then flip it over and iron on the back side for another 30 seconds.
