Paper Baby Shoe, 1st Christmas
Greetings! Today I have a paper baby shoe as a 1st Christmas ornament. As a guest designer for 4 Crafty Chicks this month, I was told our challenge will be "Baby". So cool! There ought to be a lot of beautiful card entered! The DT cards are outstanding! I hope you've checked them out and the ladies blogs.
I recently made some felt shoes for my new grandson and I thought the pattern would work for paper shoes too. I've been waiting for the moment to try this out. I've also included the gift box for the ornament. Take any right sized box and spray it white a few times. Go for it being white, but don't worry about really great coverage or drips. Good old glitter will cover and conceal that:) I sized the ribbon first. You need to move fast when you use spray glue! Spray, adhere ribbon then apply glitter. I use the low and wide mouth Tupperware container with a spoon and glitter method. All my heavy use glitters are kept in wide mouth containers. So convenient!
Shoe: pattern, scrapbook paper, cut to 8.5 x 11, printer, scissors, ribbon, tacky glue, stickles, flower
Box: white spray paint, glue spray, round clear glitter, ribbon, flower, decorative glittered scrolls
