TEDDY, TEDDY!!! BOX AND CARD!

Hello, everyone.  I certainly hope everyone's doing better than I am.  I apologize for not getting around to visiting as much I would have liked to, however, this cold is getting worse; of course, that means I'm feeling worse.  I've slept off and on today, probably due to the codein in my cold medication, but I have also off and on worked on this little project I want to share.

This is a little teddy bear box with a matching card:


I've filled this little box with chocolates!  I found the teddy bear on the Heritage cart and had the idea of this box and card set.  And, that cute little heart nose on the box... well, it's a button that I strung a ribbon through to tie in the back to secure the box.  See, I'll show you:


Unfortunately, I still have some work to do on this cut.file because I had to improvise and hand-cut a second arm for the front of my bear box -- there isn't an arm!!!  The cut looks just like the back of this box.  The box did cut out and come together pretty well and was fine after I snipped off some unneeded edges, but it just looked awfully strange without the second arm!!!  Of course, now that I've posted this box, I don't know when I'll finish the cut.file, but if you want to try it "as is"  just let me know and I'll email it to you; you'll just have to do like I did and cut your own second arm.  Otherwise, I'll finish it eventually.

Well, I'm going to try to drop in and do some visiting, although I'll probably end up going back to sleep -- that's where I feel I'm headed right now.  We'll see...

Hugs, and...

I'll be seeing you!

I am so sorry you are still sick. I hope you have gone to the doctor, whatever is going around is really a nasty bug. Your box is just too cute with that button nose. AND thank you for asking about Aunt Eloise, I will try to mention how she's doing when I post..(she is being a little cranky again..I stopped by on my way to Rocklin the other day. Before Christmas I had taken her a little Christmas tree and she wanted to know where that d_____ tree came from and she wanted it out of there..bless her heart, I told her Everett would take it out this week) You are so sweet to think of her. How is your Aunt doing. You need to take care of yourself.. I will be keeping you in my prayers.. hugs

I'm sorry you're not feeling well Audrey. . .you are sleeping off and on not only because of the codeine, but because your body is telling you you need the rest. You made me laugh while describing the bear with only one arm. It does look strange from the back, but since you added an arm the front looks adorable. Love the idea for using it as a box for candy. So cute! Hope you are feeling better today! Best, Curt

Get pleny of rest so you can kick that cold to the curb!!!
