Once again, I pulled out my pizza boxes and used spray glue to adhere felt to the tops. Darker colored felt worked much better than my last attempt (light green showed too much brown through it for my taste). Plus, I thought that blue worked well with polar bears! Most of the shapes are AccuCut dies with puffy paint details.
Polar bear, lion, and hippo
Flamingo, zebra, and snake
(Use a horse die cut for the zebra and give him stripes.)
Elephant, leopard, and peacock
(I had to run a clip art peacock for the pattern.)
Walrus and zookeeper
(The walrus is also a clip art pattern.)
With 4 sets of Polar Bear, Polar Bear, I am now down to 42 pizza boxes. I expect that there will be more forthcoming! I also used 1 pizza box to hold felt scraps less than 1/4 sheet. That helped to clean up my felt box, but still kept those pieces around because they make great details (eyes, feet, etc.)
