a big bear hug.

With lawn fawn's inspiration week over, I'm at the end of my marathon blogging of 9 days in a row.  And even though this the last project I'm sharing with you, it was the very first one I created.

When I received the Mama Elephant dies, I was trying to make little cards and things for the kids to brighten up their first days at school.

I used the new Tags a Lot dies to create these little bear hug packages for lunchtime treats:

My kids are huge fans of the carnival cupcakes set that was released last month, so I knew they would love these tags.  I didn't anticipate my son coming home telling me how much he loved the treat, but that he got teased by his friends.

womp, womp.

I guess we're at that age now. He told me to keep making him stuff, but could I please just give him the tags separately at home? ha.

I combined the adorable bear image with a custom sentiment using sketchy letters.

And inside the packages? Had to be bear cookies, of course!

I hope you like it, and thanks for stopping by!



  1. Poor Thomas!!!! I love that he still wants you to make him stuff though. This really is adorable. Those kids do not get invited to the birthday party, where there will be all sorts of amazing made stuff, and tags too!

  2. Your tag is absolutely adorable! I'm sure you'll enjoy the slight break after your blogging-marathon.. .although I admit I loved every minute of it and seeing all of the fun creations from the LF's design team! And so sorry to hear Thomas was teased =/ ...but I'm happy he really liked his tag.. and that's all that matters! ♥

  3. These are adorable!
    I remember when the same thing happened with my son...... it's a little hard when they get older. :(

  4. So sweet....I love those adorable little bears.

  5. S super sweet! You just made me miss those graham teddys even more (we don't have them here in Sweden). Wish I could make something like this for Ted! Hugs! + Thanks for Always beeing so inspiring - love coming here!
