Your Three Simple Steps

1) Take a photo of the object you want to plushify

For Budsies®:  Take a photo of your drawing, sculpture, cartoon, or video game character. If you don't have a drawing you like and need a little creative inspiration, try out our Inspiration Machine

For Selfies™ : Take a photo of a person you love (it’s OK if that person is you)

For Petsies®:  Take a photo of your pet or your friend’s pet or a really cute animal you want to make your pet
