Teddy Bear Party Gear

You can put this party together for under $20.00.  Setting a color palette makes it all look more "purchased"!
I did Little Debbie chocolate muffins.  You could frost them or not.  How sugared up do you want the kids when they go home?  lol  I did Apple Juice in boxes.  It limits some spills.  the other treats were Teddy Bear cookies, and sour Gummi Bears (I chose sour GB's as they are sugared and wouldn't stick to the box.).

I wheeled the napkins with our P is for Paws wheel from
the BAB products.  The plates I stamped using 2 stamps from Seal of Pawthenticity set.  I used Melon Mambo as it matched
the party horns.  Soft Suede was my choice of brown.  Any would work.  Just make sure you use dye inks as they are safe inks for kids to use.

The party horns and straws were created as follows: 
For the horns I layered the paw embosslit shape onto 
the flower shape punched from the Teddy Bear cookie treat package.  I then layered that on a scallop.  This is attached to
a strip of paper that wrapped around the tube of the horn 
and taped closed on the back.

The straws are very easy.  Using sticky strip pieces on each side and across the middle of the paw embosslit shape, I laid the straw on the tape and then attached it to a scallop.

For the cupcake picks. I layered DSP circles onto chocolate chip scallops and then glued the bear head from the embosslit onto the DSP circle.  Below is a picture of how I got the smooth edge for the chin. (Slide the bear through the slot for paper.  Then pull the ears up and punch.)  You will need to make 2 of these for each cupcake pick.  Apply sticky strip to the back of one scallop.  Lay 1/3 of a straw on the shape then layer the other over the top.  The cup cake wrappers are from the Perfect Settings die.

The teddy bear cookie treat containers are very easy.
Cut CS 3.5" x 8.5 ".  Score at 1", 4.25", and 5.25" from left side.  Punch 1" flap with scallop punch.  The top flap should be the same width as the bottom width.  Fold on score lines.  Attach bag to inside, so treats can be seen through the window.  Close flap over.  You can use sticky strip, staples, or binder clips to close treat package.  It will depend on the age of the kids attending.  Which would be safest?

The mini milk cartons filled with sour Gummi Bears, are cut with the new Milk Carton die from Stampin' Up!  After assembling them, I wrapped them with a strip of DSP, attached a bear embosslit (see the tiny hearts I attached?) and stapled them shut.  Good thing bears aren't afraid of the dark!

Back view of the magnetic bears. Make sure when cutting your bear shapes that the magnetic side of the sheet is facing down before die cutting. That way it will stick to stuff.
More ideas for the Build A Bear dies and stamps coming tomorrow!
Hope you enjoyed the blog hop! 

Happy stamping!
