25 X 25 X 25 - Let's the parade begins...Teddy Bear Parade & Children around the World

Yeap!!! I feel a sense of relief... I have finished cutting and assembling 50 cuts of bear from Cricut Cartridge Teddy Bear Parade and 25 cuts of a Persian girl from Cricut Cartridge Children around the World. I made these for a swap. It's been fun but I'm so glad I'm done. I used stickles, pearls in a bottle, embossing folders, glossy accents and ink to embellish them.
