Festive Bear Ornaments :: Enfeites festivos com ursos

The Holidays are just around the corner! I can almost feel the warmth of spices coming out of the oven and the anticipation of the lovely gifts being unwrapped by family and friends. I like to make each present special by adding gift tags, illustrations or colourful yarn.
