It is time for another challenge at Create with Connie & Julie.  This week our challenge was to create Kids Packaging.  The items we are featuring this week from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Mini and Sale-a-Bration brochure include – Something Sweet, Fox & Friends, and Picnic Parade stamp sets, and the Build-A-Bear collection.  I chose to create something with the Build-A-Bears – I have had lots of fun with them on other projects and this idea has been bouncing around in my head for a few weeks.

I think it really turned out cute…are you ready to see it?  It is a real WOW in person.  I wish you could see it in person.

The box is a nice size and you could use it for many different things.  Dress the bears in baby colors and use it for a baby shower.  Add the die-cut pieces for Easter and make them into Easter baskets, or some other holiday.  Use it for a teacher gift – cut top notes and have each student write a note to the teacher and put them all in the box – give it to her for teacher appreciation day or her birthday (or his).  Decorate the bears – like cheerleaders and football players or whatever sport your child is in for a coaches gift.  This could be lots of fun – just dress up the bears the way you need them.

Do you love it?  I have a tutorial for the members of Create with Connie & Julie.  It is available only on the Create site!  If you haven’t joined the class it is not to late – all the past projects are still there for you to see and we still have lots more to go.  Have fun and I hope you play along with the challenge on Create with Connie & Julie – remember to add your link to the post on the site so you can win prizes!!!  Every week we choose two winners from all the winners that play.  Good Luck!
