wall paper shoe ( available in my Etsy shop also )
glue ..I like clear tacky glue
ribbons , lace, buttons , embelishments of choice
Various papers .. I use crepe paper
German glass glitter
thread & needle
Next , if you want to have a gathered crepe paper trim , add that first ! Gather with needle and thread , then glue on the backside.
Hold into place with a clothespin while it dries !
Next I cut out of brown craft paper ( or you can use any kind of paper) the same shoe design , and hand stich it all around the shoe , leaving the top of the shoe open
Next comes the fun part of embelishing your shoe.. I took a small piece of wired edge ribbon and made a circle ..squishing it and glued it to the top !
Next I added some teeny tiny lace along the top of the shoe to finsh off the raw edge and added some pearls for embelishment !
If you want to be able to hang your shoe you can make a loop out of ribbon and attach (glue) to the top of your shoe!If you want to add glitter , I brushed some decopodge medium to the edges of the crepe paper and dusted with silver german glass glitter! Stunning !!
Next I made a tag to insert in the top opening of the shoe ! You can make your own tag , or use a purchased one.
Insert your tag in the top of the shoe & you are done !!! Fun to attach to a gift , use as a card or hang in a special little spot !! You can add text to the shoe for a statement for a friend or yourself . The creating is the fun part !
