In the Spotlight - "Tear Bears" Print E-mail
Our Blog - Classes
Written by Angela Crandall   

"If you go out in the woods today, you're sure of a big surprise!" (I'm humming along as I type this. Anyone else remember the "The Teddy Bears' Picnic" song?)

Better yet, come to Lisa's class and learn basic techniques using textured mulberry paper to make "Tear Bears!"

                                                                 Tear Bear


Too cute, right?! Can't you just see these fuzzy darlings on cards? Scrapbook pages? What about an adorable ensemble with a canvas for a girl's or boy's room...a great baby shower gift!

Make bears in class and take home the patterns, so you can make a whole sleuth of them! (Yep! Sleuth is the term for a group of bears...learn something new at Simple Pleasures every day!) We'll have several colors of these specialty mulberry papers in stock, too, for creating more Tear Bears and for our other paper crafting creations!

*Watch for announcements on future classes to customize "Tear Bear" clothes!

Call or stop by the store soon to reserve your seat in this "Beary" fun class!
