Panda Sweetie

I was at World Market shopping the other day and my friend said she should make a panda box to put some of the cool candies you can find in there into. Well, naughty me thought I am going to make one too! My son's teacher LOVES panda bears, so that was my big incentive.
I started out cutting 2 Whisper White circles with the Clear Circle Big Shot die. The ears are Basic Black cut with the 1 3/4" Circle punch. I also used this punch on the black portion of the eyes, the front paws and the eyebrows. For the inside of the ears I used the 1 3/8" Circle punch and Pretty In Pink paper. For the rest of the eyes I used the 1", 3/4" and 1/2" Circle punches. I also used the 1" Circle punch for the mouth. For the arms and back feet I used the Wide Oval punch. The hearts on the paw and feet came from the Heart to Heart punch, along with the 1/2" Circle punch for the paw. The heart on the nose came from the Occasion mini catalog, it is called Small Heart punch.
The body is supported behind the white belly by a black Top Note cut using the Big Shot. I used the rounded corners to line up the arms and legs of the bear. Last, but not least I used the White gel pen to dot the little eyes.
I hope this helps you make a cute little bear of your own.
