Cute Bear Jar

Well ~ This week some of the girls from my team and I went on a trip to Ikea. My second time there! You have GOT to try the sweedish meatballs. My friend Robin suggested them, and they ARE fabulous!

Anyway, I found these cute little jars there (they were 4 for $2.99) and when they stand on the side, they just look like animals to me... At least, animals waiting to happen! So, Last night at the technique junkies club, we made these cute little bears! LOOK at that CUTE BUTTON tail! Isn't that the cutest!?!

So, How did we do it?? Many of the girls who came into the class said "I could NEVER do that" And less than 5 minutes later, they had their own work of art completed!

I'm hoping that this graphic is large enough so you can see it...
With Close to Cocoa paper we punched a scollop and two 3/4" circles.
With creamy caramel paper, we punched a 1" circle and two half inch circles

With black paper, we punched one 1/4" and two 1/8" circles and with White paper we punched two 1/4" circles. We used SU!'s tombo multi purpose adhesive to stick it together.
Then I opened my stash of cut rubber peices (leftover from when I mount my stamps) and we used that like dimensionals. We used crystal effects on the side that was not sticky, so that our bear would really stick up off the cover of the treat jar! Aren't these Fabulous? Here is a photo that breaks down what we punched.
