Making chores "Beary Fun"

Ever since I saw the new Build-a-Bear stamp sets and dies in the new holiday mini I was sold! I have used them to make paper dolls with clothes for my little girl, and today I made some adorable chore charts for both of my little ones using the same dies. Look at how cute they turned out!
I made the names with the Stampin' Up! Alphabet Simple Letters (set of four) Sizzix dies, the big shot and chipboard. I love how I was able to cut the chipboard and designer series paper at the same time!

The word CHORES was cut out on the "Big Shot" using the Go Go boots Alphabet (set of 12) medium sizzlets dies.

To make the chore charts re-usable I put a window sheet over the top of the portion I write on(with a dry erase marker) so I can change their chores as needed. Crystal effects allowed me to glue it on while being nearly invisible.
