A Beary Sweet Valentine

Saturday, February 21, 2015

My kiddos just laid down for their afternoon rest times.  Everyone is tired from an early start for basketball, and my littlest started running a temperature at the gym.  I'm hoping it's just his teeth, but it looks like we'll be snuggling in at home for the weekend, none-the-less.  Anyway, I now have a moment to share Adina's Valentines, as promised in yesterday's Family Update post, with you all.  We went super easy this year and put my Cameo to work making these.
It was a bit late by the time we finished these up Valentine's Day eve, and we were out the door just as the sun was coming up the next morning.  So, please ignore the shadows, as I tried to get a few shots of the finished cuties in the morning light.  All the cardstock is Stampin' Up! and includes Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, and Basic Black.  We didn't change the Silhouette 3D Bear Favor Box cut file at all.  Why mess with perfection?
There were a few extra images that we had to wade through, like a tummy without the sentiment and a snout, which we didn't use because the main box showed through the cut snout in the face itself.  I guess the designer just wanted to give lots of custom options.
Anyway, we printed the "You are a BEARY Good Friend!  Happy Valentine's Day!" sentiment before cutting everything out.  I think the tummy itself might've got stretched a bit while we were working through all that, but we went with it.  Then, I put one together so Adina could see how it was done and sent her to work on the rest with a bottle of Elmer's.
Once they were dry, we stuffed them with a little bag of Gummy Bears, sealed with a bit of gingham ribbon, tied in a bow.  Oh, my goodness!  So sweet!  You should've seen how much her friends loved them.  They were in awe, and I just loved that every one of them walked out the doors still holding their new, little, paper buddies.  So fun! 
Well, thanks so much for peeking in!  Stay safe and warm out there, and enjoy your weekends!  XOXO
