Ballerina

Hello all, by now, several of you are hopefully creating some fun poseable build-a-bears!  Here is a freebie for all of my loyal readers.  To make the bear, follow the instructions HERE.  Instructions for the poseable bear is in my newest Build-a-Bear class.

Stampin' Up! Punches needed:
3/4" Circle
1" Circle
1 3/4" Circle
Eyelet Border

Punch half of 3/4" circle in white.  Line up 1 3/4" circle over the top of 3/4" punched circle as shown.

For tutu, cut a strip of pink designer series paper (I used pink pirouette polkadot) 1 1/2" x 12".  Punch entire length with eyelet border punch.  Spritz the strip of paper with water (or Fabreeze).  The paper will soften so you can easily gather the paper as shown.  Cut a strip of DSP 1/2" x 1 3/4" for the waistband.  Fold the 1/2" x 1 3/4" piece in half lengthwise.  Use a strong adhesive like sticky strip to fasten the gathered tutu piece to the strip, fold the strip over the top and fasten on each side.  

For the toeshoes, punch slightly less than half of a 3/4" circle and then line up 1" Circle over the top and punch as shown.  Round out each end.  Cut a ribbon about 8" long, fold in half and attach to back of each shoe.  Wrap ribbons around legs once and tie in place

I am trying so hard to make this adorable bear, but I cannot figure out how you made the top of the skirt flat under the band. Can you help me?
