I used teddy bear parade cart cut 2 bears one wht and one pink. cut off head,ends of paws and feet in pink glue on to bear Then I used the school teacher badge for the ears cut one wht at 3in real size and one in pink 2 rs. glue onto the bear ears I hand cut hair and belly you could probably use a cloud for the hair if wanted I cut one in nose circle cut into a crecent shape eyes are 2in oval and tear drop cuts for inside eyes blushed cheeks and drew on mouth add shading around entire thing with a blk. Hope this helps Janis (wasn't sure what bear cart you had.)

La la loopsy valentine box

 Hope everyone is doing okay. Today I am going to enter into the challenge at valentines day challenge 38. My granddaughter has been asking me to make her a lala loopsy box for her valentines and room. So I decided to make it look like an outfit that you get in a boutique. I started off with a cheerio box and swiss box altered the box down to this shape. I then used the shirt cut on groovy times cricut cart 11in and the sweet tooth cart for the bows 2 and 4in. the tutu is handmade also. I drew the lala cut out pieced it and the name is stickers.
 here is the side and top view the hole on top is outlined with washy tape
now here you can see how I altered and cut down the box before covering it in all white and then glue the t-shirt on top of the white and then the tutu just pulls up around the box and can be taken off to wear if wish. hugs
