Cinderella Slipper

I joined a swap in AFTCM where we make a 3-d or flat Cinderella Slipper.
The template was obtained from Terri's blog which includes a video on how to put the shoe together.

I traced the template onto some light cardboard and then covered each piece with some of my Faux Washi paper that I had in my handmade papers. Here is a link to how to make this paper on Trish B's site.

Once I had the shoe put together, I added some lace to the front, along with some fancy metal trim. I also added some plain metal trim around the top of the back portion of the shoe.

I wanted to add a flower but the ones I had did not work well. I discovered a tutorial/video on making flowers on Joanne's blog and decided to give it a try. I sprayed my petals with Smooch Spritz prior to putting the flower together. To complete the flower I punched out some leaves from a piece of Cuttlebug embossed cardstock, sprayed them with a coordinating colour of Smooch Spritz.

I added a heel using a child's alphabet block that I cut down, but it was a bit "wonky" so later on I removed it and added two wooden circles coloured with a plum fluid chalk ink.

Beautiful work Rena - it would take me years to do that much.
