Build A Bear Projects

I helped out in the first grade last month, making a gift for the parents for Christ- mas. This is what we came up with. I just love this SU! Build A Bear die! My 1st grader decorated this bear, then we made his footprint using the Ballet Blue Craft ink pad. I wrote "My 'Bear' Foot" under the footprint with my Basic Black Journaler and then my son wrote the message. I really love the way these turned out! When the class made them, every single bear was different! I had a bunch of shirts pants, skirts, hats, purses, etc. cut out and you would not believe the diversity in finished products. This was a great creative avenue for the kids and I love SU! for that opportunity.
I didn't have a chance to post this last month. My youngest son Zach's birthday was in Decem- ber and this is the card that I made for him. I used SU!'s Build A Bear Bear Bigz Die for the bear and mouth. The hat is from SU!'s Beary Boy Sizzlit. The clothes are from SU!'s Beary Essentials and the bat and glove are a retired Sizzix die. I clipped some Old Olive cardstock so that it would look like grass. The DSP is retired SU!

Thanks for stopping by the Stamping Station. I hope you found some Build A Bear inspiration here.
