Build a Bear tote bag

The Late Night Stampers Design Team challenge this week is gift ideas!  Although, I originally made a couple of these canvas tote bags for the craft fair I did a few weeks ago, I do plan on giving out a couple of these for gifts this Christmas.  I loved dressing up my Build a Bears and had fun shopping for fabrics.  (Wouldn't you know it, I just had sold off a bunch of calico fabrics a couple years ago in a garage sale…they would have been PERFECT!) 










I used Stampin' Up!'s Build A Bear Bigz die and Beary Essentials Bigz Die and fabric backed with Wonder Under for the bear that I ironed onto the Canvas Tote bag.  She has a little Latte flower button in her hair!

I included a 24 count package of Crayons and four Stampin' Up! Note Cards made with the Beary Best Friends stamp set.  I left these very simple for the kids to color.  The Notecards were just dressed up with a strip of cardstock along one side, and then the Basic Black images stamped on Whisper White and mounted on coordinating primary colors (Yo Yo Yellow, Real Red, Glorious Green or Brilliant Blue).  The envelopes were also stamped with the Beary Best Friends images.

It was a fun project to make!  Hope you have a wonderful week.  I have lots of designing to do for Create with Connie and Julie…hope to get caught up!
