Well, it's not quite flip-flop weather up her in Edmonton but I saw geese last week ... and a baby mouse ... so it MUST be spring ... and spring means it's White Shoe and Pretty Toes Season - woo hoo! That's what I was thinking when I designed my latest paper shoe project for my friend's private class on Friday. I love these shoes - and I'm not even a shoe fanatic! Check out my latest:
The shoe itself is made with good old Whisper White card stock - the showe liner is made using the Fresh Prints designer paper stack in the mini catalogue. The flower is made using the new Spiral Flower Die (also in the mini). A glue gun is a must to make those flowers!
I made the tag using the My Digital Studio system. At Christmas I spent about 3 HOURS making the tag ... this morning it only took half an hour - I think I'm getting the hang of it! Can you read the tag? It says "Happy "White Shoes and Pretty Toes" Season!! *lol* I also made a few tags in different colors that just say "A little something for a very special someone".
Although this particular shoe is my concept, it originated over a year ago when I found a similar project on www.skiptomylou.org (Cindy is her name) and on that site she gave credit for the shoe templates to Ellen Hutson's - her website is www.ellenhutson.com I give full credit for this project to Ellen and Cindy - thank you for sharing, ladies!!!
Rather than re-take pictures on how to put this bad boy together just click on this link and check out the tutorial I did for the witch shoe. The only change I would make is to tell you to make SURE you use Sticky strip to adhere your shoe together. Seriously. Snail doesn't hold. Use the strip!

For the centre of the flower I just popped a small white pom pom into the flower when the hot glue was still hot. Done! I highly recommend you try making one of these shoes - they really are quite addicting ... and make the PERFECT Teacher / Friend / Co-worker gift. Seriously!
Right! I have my last class just after lunch so I better go walk Doodles and get cleaned up. Pop in again soon. Until next time - have a stampy day!
