I love tear bears, this card is for my nephews 1st birthday. Tear bears are made by drawing around a template onto mulberry paper. You then wet the edge of the paper with a paintbrush and tear the paper. When dried you can use chalks to add a bit of colour and then glue the pieces together and add features. Great fun with excellent results.
I ordered my set of pattern books from Teddy Bear Treasures from US http://www.teddybear-treasures.com/
