February Free Project: Teddy Bear Cube for All Occasions

February’s free project is a miniature vignette inside a roughly 1-inch cube “gift” box, presented with a teddy bear. This project is fairly easy—if you don’t mind working in smaller scales (1/144 inch). You can make this for yourself or as a gift. Teddy bears can be given for any occasion, and printies are provided for a Christmas or Valentine vignette. Tutorial created by Thuy Means. Download the project instructions and printies >
