I was made into an “honourary Grandma” to my girlfriend’s daughter’s girls. There are four of them in total ranging from 3 to 9. This year I bought them all matching Teddy Bears, but to make each one unique to each “grand” daughter I decided to make each teddy a tutu. For Mya, who is in ballet, I made a pretty pink and white tu-tu. For her sister, Abbey, who does HipHop dancing, the skirt is black and pink. For Zoey and Piper, who both live in the USA, I made one tutu the colours of the US flag – red, white and blue, and the other to match the Canadian flag – red and white. I also made a cute gift tag in matching colours to attach to the ear tag and matching Christmas cards.
The Teddies decked out in their Tutus!
Ear tags made using Penny Black – Tutu Sweet Stamp. Coloured with CopicsMatching Christmas Cards. I made the cards the 2016 Kaisercraft Christmas Wishes Collection Card stock and die cuts. The bear was created from BEAR die set by Marianne Design Collectibles. I made the tutu simply hand switching then ruffling coloured tulle and gluing it to the bear. I popped the bear up. I will create a box envelop to accommodate the thickness of the card design.

I entered my card into the following Challenges:
As You Like It Challenge -Do you prefer: Teddies or Fairies (& Why) I prefer Teddies because they are so huggable, soft, and different. When I was born, my brother who was 8 years older than me called me Pooh bear (from Winnie the Pooh). He also started my bear collection. Card 4
