New Shoes..

.. Paper shoes!

As I have been in a ‘anything other than card making’ mood,
I thought to have a go with a paper shoe template
that I’ve had in my fav’s for a while.

I wanted to make a gift box of some kind..
and the finished shoe makes an excellent treat box for all kinds of occasions.

I’ve decided to go for a vintage look,
by printing the template direct onto the back of cream cardstock.
Cut it out and stamped a crackle background all over it,
then inked all the edges.
Cut out the liner from patterned paper,
inked edges and stuck to the inside of the shoe.

Fold on all score lines and stick the shoe together with strong adhesive.

I then got my Antique gold glimmer mist
and sprayed all over for some extra sparkle.

To decorate I have used some looped ribbon,
lace, pearls, flowers and pins.
Inside the organza sachet are some vintage embellishments.

I think it looks totally adorable!

Thank You!!
