There was a time when I had no idea how to use crafting scissor and if you asked me what “glue dots” were, I would’ve had a blank stare on my face. I literally had NO crafting ability or experience. Then along came my talented MIL, who taught me to start small and to keep trying. Together we created the Most Adorable Baby Shoe Favor you will ever see. It’s not difficult, you just need to see the steps for yourself and you can do that very easily, with this Baby Shoe Favor Tutorial!

Let’s Get Started
Start by using the Artist CTMH Cricut Cartridge template. You can also download it here.
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.
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.
The final step was to figure out what to put inside the shoe!
