Something to Cheer about!

I had to share my latest Build-a-Bear creation. She's a cute little Bruin Cheerleader! And of course she has a lot to cheer about. The UCLA Bruins are 3-0 so far this season. I'm hoping they keep it up! GO BRUINS! Meanwhile, my hubby wasn't too happy with his Trojans this weekend.

I'm thinking of making my Bruin Cheerleader a magnet so we can stick her on the fridge for the season :) She is just adorable!

Here's how I made her pom poms - punch out three 1 inch circles from wrapping tissue paper for each pom pom. TIP: sandwich the tissue paper between 2 pieces of regular paper for easy punching. Otherwise, you'll notice that the tissue "gives" too much to punch cleanly. Put a dot of the Tombo glue in the center of one tissue circle and layer the next 2 pieces on top. Let dry, then scrunch up and fluff. Adhere to bear paws with a glue dot. Viola - you're done.
