SU Build a Bear with Cricut clothes

I just got the SU Build A Bear die! It is so adorable. I bought it thinking I could use the Cricut Paperdoll cartridge for outfits. I immediately went to work. Here is my Beary Cute Pumpkin.
I cut the bear out of brown felt instead of paper. I then measured the height of the bear and set my Cricut to that size. I selected the pumpkin costume. Now, I have Design Studio so I am able to see the cut on the screen. I adjust the width a little bit because it looked like it would be a tad bit too small. I cut the pumpkin top three times so I could get the vine and stem. I simply cut those pieces off and glued to the orange piece. I chalked the inside dimension cuts with brown.
I think he turned out so cute! Stay tuned for more ideas with this adorable little bear.
(one thing I didn't like about the bear die cut is the face part where the nose and mouth are cuts completely out of the main image. There is nothing to layer another color onto. )

This is a very easy way to accent your fall pages. I made this border set for a Seasons Border swap on SCS. The printed paper is from an All Seasons paper pad by Paper Studio. I used my cricut to make the basket (Doodlecharms cart.) and acorns (Stretch Your Imagination cart.). The leaves were punched with CM's leaf punch. The solid cs is CM an SU. I chalked the marks on the basket and sponged the tops of the acorns with close to cocoa. I can't wait to see what the other gals have made.
