Paper Shoe Favor and Template

I was searching around for a fun and in-expensive favor idea when I found the template for this cute little paper shoe. Isn't it just so adorable!?!  I made one right away to see how it looked and then loved it so much I made sixty-four more to give as favors for a women's church activity.  I know...crazy right?  It was so worth it though!


To make the shoe, copy the template onto heavy white card stock, staple the scrapbook paper to it with the scrapbook paper on the bottom (in a few places on the outside of the template to hold them together) and then cut them out together. 


Fold only the card stock shoe on the fold lines then put the scrapbook paper shoe in front of it and fold them again together.  I used staples to hold the shoe together because it was faster than using glue.  There is a staple hidden under the jewel in the center of the flower, a staple on the very bottom of the heel, and a couple on the sides.  You might want to use glue in a couple of places on the sides as well.

For the flower and the heel, I just switched the scrapbook paper around and matched them up with coordinating colors.


The 'net stocking' is netting sewn into a bag and is filled with a few snack size candy bars and a rolled up message with some quotes on it.  The price tag says The worth of 'SOULS' is great, which was the theme for the night.



It takes about 15 minutes to make one shoe, so if you start a project like this be prepared with some good movies to watch while you cut them out and plan on having sore fingers for a few days. : )

No two shoes were exactly alike, they were all different...just like us!

Don't you think this shoe would make a fun invitation (girls night out, princess party, etc.) or as a thank you to a female teacher?

You can find the fashion shoe template at Split Coast Stamper.  You'll  need to scroll down and look for the pdf file called 'new shoe'.
