Teddy Bears in Oz Blog Hop

Welcome to the last stop on the Teddy Bears in Oz Blog Hop.  Along the way you have seen lions, witches, wizards, and now, munchkins – all created from the Cricut Lite Teddy Bear Parade.

No matter how you arrived here in Munchkin Land, we’re happy to see you and share some insights into making teddy bear munchkins.

On the right, from the Lollipop Guild, is a bear cut at 3″ tall and using the elf ensemble from Teddy Bears on Parade.  I cut the base in white cardstock and colored in the stripes and sleeve color.  I hand trimmed the shirt to resemble the munchkin in the movie and added a collar from the tourist bear.  I created the lollipop in the Cricut Craft Room using a capital “I” and a circle.  Welding the two together and sizing them to the munchkin bear was super easy.  I used a small acetate bag to wrap the lollipop.

On the left is another munchkin with a mop cap from the “nightgown” on Teddy Bears on Parade.  I used Cricut Craft Room to create a long stemmed flower (capital “I” and a flower on the cartridge) and welded that to the cap base layer.  I cut it in white cardstock and added colors with Copics.  I also cut a second flower on a stem and glued that directly over the welded layer for added dimension.  There is also a dot of Liquid Pearls for the flower center.  Her dress is from the “Belle” outfit and I added a hand-cut apron.

For both bears, I added “furry” texture using Copic markers.


Special thanks to Renee at I Came, I Saw, I Created for coming up with the terrific idea of a Teddy Bear in Oz Hop and the costume selections.   There are some amazing techniques and ideas along this yellow brick road.  If you arrived here on your own and wish to get on the path to see all of the fabulous creations, the full lineup follows.  Before you run off though, leave a comment to be entered in a drawing for a $25 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamps.  I will be drawing one winner on Sunday 13 January at 7:00 Eastern Time.

And here is the whole line-up beginning with Renee.  In addition to the Cricut Craft Room file for the Teddy Bears of Oz,  she has a terrific prize available.
