Beary Dressed Up Build-A-Bears

I think the Build-A-Bear Bigz Dies and coordinating bear accessories are very fun, but when I saw what Carmen DeBruce had done to dress up her bears, well…they are just too cute for words!

Introducing, Mr & Mrs. Build A. Bear

Those plain bears sure look awesome when they are all dressed up, don't they? I can see these on special party favors for the wedding party, or even atop the wedding cake!

Groom: Some of the punches used include the 1-1/4" Square, 1-3/8" Square, Trio Flower, Small Oval, and Word punches.

Bride: Some of the punches used
include the Scallop Circle, Full Heart, 1-3/4" Circle, Trio Flower, and Small Oval punches.

After the bear nuptials, you know they have to go on a honeymoon.  I think this couple went to the Bahamas, so they need to be outfitted appropriately…

Heehee!  I love it!  I'm diggin' the shades and the beach towel on her, and the snorkel and fins on him!  They are even jointed; their arms and legs are attached with brads, so they are movable!

Beach Babe: Some of the punches used
include the 3/4" Circle, 1/2" Circle, Word, 1-3/4" Circle, Small Oval, and 1-3/8" Square punches.

Surfer Dude: Some of the punches
