That Build-A-Bear (referred to as BAB) is SO CUTE! I sent a little girl a BAB card on her birthday and her mother said she absolutely loved it and carried it around all day, talking about it. Children love the Build-A-Bear! I have been wanting to make a BAB magnet board for a Christmas gift and ran across one ready made so I snatched it up quickly to use for this project.
First I used Garden Green for the lower portion "grass". I trimmed the top edge with SU's retired Deckle Scissors. Then I wheeled several colors of green with various Jumbo Wheels and punched them out with the Scallop Circle Punch. I used scraps for quite a few of these punchies, and a couple of retired greens snuck into this project! (the beloved Kiwi and Wasabi!) The tree trunk is Soft Suede cardstock run through the Big Shot with the "Distressed" Texturz Plate and then trimmed by hand. These elements were all applied to the magnet board with Snail Adhesive and some Dimensionals on a few of the tree scallops. The sun is the larger scallop circle cut with the Big Shot and the Scallop Circles #2 die. I cut it once then rotated the circle slightly and ran it through again; this cut the scallops into little points. I used YoYo Yellow and then sponged the edges with Summer Sun.
The circular storage containers are great to store the clothes for the Build-A-Bears cut with the Big Shot and the Beary Essentials die. They have a magnetic bottom and are easily removed from the board.
