As I've mentioned before, my Mum does sugarcraft, while I was visiting her recently, she was making sugarcraft shoes ... and there it was in the back of my mind ... I bet I could do something similar with card! So I quickly drew a rough pattern.
When I got home I started drawing up dimensions and trying to work out the template ... It took a week of cutting out and playing before I got it right and was satisfied with the result. Then I could really start playing with the different types of shoes I could make and before I new it I had enough to open a shop, lol.
I think they would be great if your giving money (I always feel like I'm doing someone out of a gift when they ask for money ... this way I'm giving a small gift too). You can tailor the card for the person who'll be receiving it and it would be lovely for 21st, 18th birthdays as well as for weddings etc.
And with the box to match (with either a single or double window) it becomes a lovely keepsake.I really love them and thought I might try a Cinderella glass slipper (may need to make another template for a slip on/slipper type shoe ... oh the ideas).

Hope you like them?

  1. Swung on over here from SCS after leaving a comment on your post. Just had to see all those shoes you designed. Will you be sharing the pattern with us soon? You are so creative and did a fantastic job.

  2. My cousin works in a shoe store. She would love to put this on her desk. Will there be a pattern soon? These are truly magnificent.
