Belle, Reboot

When LD first introduced us to their Disney-inspired princesses a few years ago, Belle, for some reasons (perhaps accidentally?) was left out of the collection. When asked, LD suggested that we can make the cutting file for Belle by combining the SVGs for Jasmine and Tiana. I tried doing just that and even wrote a tutorial for it. You can find the post by clicking HERE. LD did include a cutting file for Belle in a later collection but I never got around to making it.

With the recent release of the non-animated Beauty and the Beast movie, I was reminded of that Belle SVG. I finally sat down to cut and assemble the layers. The cutting file worked perfectly but I went ahead and made a few adjustments for my personal preference. This is what I ended up with:

Isn't she pretty? I love her! The Jasmine-Tiana hybrid worked fine but I really like the new version! For the sake of comparison, this was the hybrid that I made back in 2012:


Since Belle looked kinda lonely, I went ahead and cut out and assembled the Beast too.

Look out, Belle! There's a Beast behind you!

I have been looking forward to watching the new movie with the kids but we were so busy this past weekend, we didn't managed to get anywhere close to the theater. All the reviews that I've read so far were very positive- everyone who has watched it seem to have enjoyed it very much. Hopefully, we'll get to watch it too soon.
