I wanted to make something really fabulous to send to Tracy, Miss Craft Junkie Too. She's such a big inspiration to me, and a real nice gal too! I decided to make a set of adorable paper shoes. I got a free template online and made two of them, the template can be found here
As a finishing touch I made a really cute shoe box for them.
I wanted to make a little something cute to match, so I settled on one of the darling purses from the Forever Young Cricut cartridge. I wanted to add something special to it. It closes with velcro that is hidden under a chipboard flower. For the handle I used some thick brown grosgrain ribbon, but the really cool thing is that I took rhinestone brads and put them in the ribbon! I just used my paper piercer to make small holes to slip the brads through and I just love the effect. I think it is super fun and adds a lot to it.
The last item is just a simple shaped card, I made it for one of my National Scrapbooking day challenges, so it's already been posted on the blog, but since it's part of this girlie set I thought I'd include it here too. It's made with the Forever Young cartridge also, and I just did a little bit of really simple welding with my Gypsy to make it a card.
This has got to be one of the best projects I've ever done. I really, truly love it. All the papers are from the We R Memory Keepers stack, Tiffany's. Just love that stack! Perfect for projects like this.
If anyone has an interest in seeing me put the shoes together on video, let me know and I can make another pair.
