Getting these brilliantly feathered friends to the table requires pasting (but no basting) and some cutting and folding.

For a gobbling-good centerpiece, set out two or three in the middle of your holiday table. Or let smaller toms do service as Thanksgiving place cards.
Glue turkeys back-to-back; cut out. Cut two strips of orange art paper, each 1 5/8 by 15 inches for the place cards and 3 1/8 by 20 inches for the centerpiece.
Using a bone folder or straightedge, accordion-fold strips, making each fold as deep as the height of the base. Glue end of folded strip to left side of base, making sure first fold faces up; hold until secure. Glue and hold right side. Repeat on opposite side.
Dab glue underneath in center of folded strip to hold folds together; repeat on other side. For place cards, write names on card stock and lean against turkeys.
