A Really Cool Project

Here is my really cool project! At least I think it is. This is a magnetic paper doll made with the new Build-A-Bear dies from Stampin' Up.

Stampin' Up has partnered with Build-A-Bear Workshops and Sizzix to come up with a line of dies and stamp sets that are now being offered in the new Holiday Mini Catalog.

In case you can't tell, that is one of the white tins you can buy in any craft shop that the magnet is attached to. All the clothes are also magnets, so you don't have to mess with those little tabs that come on paper dolls. And since this little bear is cut from magnet sheets, she should hold up pretty well.

I did this girl in our school colors - purple and gold - and put the CW on the front which stands for Casey-Westfield High School. If you didn't want a girl, you could just pull off the skirt, put on a pair of jeans, take off the flower and you have a little boy. Cute, huh?

Here is a picture of one "naked". It even has the little heart emblem on it.
I hope you liked this project and I will have a few more bears to show you over the next few days so be sure and check back.
Thanks for looking,

too cute Kim! Can you please email me and tell me what you used for the magnets? I have heard other demo's saying they were having problems with the positive and negative properites of the magnets. I want to make some, but don't want to mess up a bunch trying to figure out what to use.
