Paper Shoes

A few weeks ago I made a paper shoe for my friend Rina as a thank you for some goodies she sent me. I searched and searched for something unique to make for her because she is definitely a unique person. :) I lost the pictures I took of her shoe when my computer crashed, but you can see it if you're interested on her YT channel here. After she posted her video several comments were posted wanting me to do a tutorial. Wish I could take credit for this idea, but I'm not that talented. I got the idea from a blog called Artful Affirmations. She has a tutorial on her blog for the pattern and instructions for the shoes. I went ahead and made a tutorial too and created the shoe on the left (the one on the right was my practice shoe for the video). You can find my tute (parts 1 & 2)on my YouTube channel if you're interested.
I'm making several posts to my blog today so make sure you scroll down.
Have a great day!

Love how your shoe turned out Tracy! Isn't it fun to be making shoes? If only we could wear them, how feminine this world would look :-)
Hugs, Ira
