Vintage Shoe Gift box/place setting/ favour

I just had to !!! Yep I had to make another shoe !!
This was the first thing I made with the Vintage Floral CD!

These can be used as either a gift box, pop some chocolates into a cello
bag and tie with ribbon, a place setting for a wedding or a favour with sweets in !
I LOVE them !!

To make it I used a template which I found here

It would be easier using double sided papers as you don't have to use a lining then.
But I decided I wanted to emboss the inner of the shoe so I cut another of the whole
shoe out of Ivory Centura pearl card which I embossed. I then cut away the piece that folds over the top
and the heel and placed the rest into the shoe manipulating it so that it fitted and cut away the excess and hid some under the covering top piece. It is really easy to do honest ! Have a go and you will see.

Here is what I used to make this:

Vintage Floral CD
Vintage Screen Embossing folder
Ivory Centura Pearl card
All purpose glue
Tacky Glue

Other items, Pearl gem and string pearls and hot glue

Have a great Bank Holiday ! I'm hoping the sun will shine as I'm 
having steak on the bbq later !! YUM !!
Happy crafting!
