Let’s Get Started
Fold the ridges inward. This is where you will put your hot glue when you assemble the shoe. My tip on using a hot glue gun for this project is use one that is a medium heat. Wish I would’ve known about this neat gadget when I assembled my shoe!
Once you fold your ridges inward, you’ll want to gently curve the paper in the shape of a shoe, without making creases and slip the slit in the back together.
I added a dot of hot glue to it to make sure it wouldn’t open up.
Using the bottom shoe template, starting at one end, add a couple of dots of hot glue and then adhere the ridges to the shoe bottom. I suggest doing this in phases as its more difficult to manipulate the shoe with the glue on it if you put the glue all the way around it at one time. I did that my first time and the shoe was crooked and my glue dried up before I got around to the other side. I had to throw it away.
Once you have the shoe bottom glued to the shoe top, then add the cute little buckle strap to the top. It won’t matter if the holes are lined up since we are going to dazzle it up later and you won’t see the holes anyway!
Try not to be too particular about the space between the top and bottom. I used this pretty white trim to hide the edge and to “pretty” it up! Use your handy glue gun for this too! Make sure you start at the crease in the back.
A favor wouldn’t be complete without a note tag thanking the guests.
