Valentine Candy Bear

Today I'd like to share with you my 3-D project for Peachy Keen challenge 13-3  I almost didn't have time to do this...I totally skipped the part about 3-D and almost posted something else I'd been working on....oh well, it definitely won't go to waste.

Here are some more details about this challenge:
Create a 3D object of your choice using bears. The 3D object can be anything, as long as bears are included somewhere on the project.

Here's my entry
 The bear head and hands and the little hearts are from the PKS stamp of the month January 2013   I used gelly roll pens for the eyes then glazed them with glossy accents.  The bear is looking over the edge of the card....or that's how I wanted it to be.

The cutest font ever, is also from the January Set.  I use Stickles to glitter up the heart.  The label is cut from Cricut Craft Room Basics.  It's not seen real well in the picture, I also dusted the edges of the label with a light pink ink.

Now here's the fun part, CHOCOLATE inside!  I used the MCT gift card holder die. It holds this piece of chocolate perfectly!  I used a little two sided tape and it stayed secure inside the holder...that is of course, until you're ready to eat it! Then just simply pull the candy off the card holder.

I adhered the bear head to the back of the gift card holder. I used pop dots and covered just enough of the little flap with the chin of the bear, but not adhering it.  This way it gives a little when you bend it up to secure the bottom flap.  I also used pop dots for the hands and stuck them to the front flap.

I hope you enjoyed my post today and that you were inspired!
Have a great day!  --C
