So here's some directions on how I made mine:
Take a 2"x10" strip of cardstock weight patterned paper, and fold it at 1", 5 1/2" and at 5 3/4". Fold this into a matchbook shape. Next, take a 2"x4 1/2" strip of thin boxboard, and glue it to the inside back of the matchbook for added support. Next take a 2"x4 1/2" piece of cardstock and fold it at 1 1/2" and at 2 1/4". Pierced the fold lines at even intervals with a small/thin needle. Tuck the longer end (to the fold line) into the small flap of the matchbook. Fold the large flap under the smaller one; staple the small flap closed, making sure you don't catch the top flap. Decorate as desired, and then insert the needles through the pierced holes.
Have fun sewing on your layouts.

Here is a quick, down and dirty way to slim him down...
deselect your original layer so it is now hidden, then with your selection tool move the sides in - just a bit... not too much or your image will looked "squished". Just enough to shave off a bit of bulge!
Here is another way... great for arms and profile shots...
Hey Mr. Fat Bear... how's it going?
With your lasso tool, select area for slimming
Go to your filter gallery and find "liquify"
Now for my finished product, I slimmed his hind end too a bit. I did find that I had to "clean up" my background a bit, because his fur left me some "messies"...
Meet the new and improved Mr. Fat Bear!
With a bit of patience and a bit of time you can master this technique... on people its easier... no fur to deal with!
