Designer's Challenge: Aviator Bear Wooden Letters Nursery Decor


I had lots of fun creating these letters that will be used for nursery decor for a client. Simple, sweet and impactful design. These embellished letters stand the test of time!

It all started with this bear...

This was a definite design challenge for me. I needed to create an aviator bear to match a Babies R Us nursery theme. Cricut to the rescue!! I had to use my new favorite Cricut cartridge Teddy Bear Parade. The Teddy bear parade cartridge did not include an "ameilia airheart" type of outfit. Alas, I figured out the best way to create the perfect aviator look! On the cartridge, there is a swimming bear. That's where I got the swim cap, goggles and towel. From the cowboy bear, I cut the kerchief. Glued to gether the kerchief and the towel resemble a scraf in flight. The plane from Just a Note needed to be altered a bit ( I cut off the top arch) and added some Twinling Goosebumps (a fav!).
