I'm not sure that they showed the Build-a-Bear Olympics Figure Skating competition last night on TV, but this bear surely was the winner! I've had this idea in my head since the Olympics started, and once I finally made my Build-A-Bear with my Big Shot Die-Cut Machine and Stampin' Up! Bigz Dies I was thrilled with how she turned out! The "skating outfit" is just the Build-A-Bear skirt and top, with a little "altering" on the neckline and sleeves…and lots of bling added with Tombow Multi glue and Stampin' Up! Chunky Essentials Glitter! To make the ice skates, I just traced the bear's foot onto Whisper White and cut it at the height I wanted. For the skating blades I traced the bottom of the shoe and just added the little attachments, all cut out of Brushed Silver card stock. I hope you've been enjoying the 2010 Olympic Games!
