I named him "Webster" because his hat and feet are embellished with the definition of "bear" taken from a vintage dictionary. He is thread jointed and aged for a shabby look. I painted a box with white paint, and then repurposed a Trader Joe's paper bag to make a pleated medallion for the top. Rather than buy ribbon, I like to rip organza. This box has a black organza bow around it that matched the ruffle around Webster's neck. I used reprint of a vintage bear to layer on top of the paper medallion. Webster can either sit on the top of the box, or you can use it as a prop with him sitting in front of it or to the side, as you can see in one of the photos.
I am offering free shipping and handling on this piece and Fifi, my baby orangutan.
