This is a shoe I made for my granddaughter, it took me three days. I had no pattern. I looked at how a shoe is made, and basically 'felt' my way through to completion. I had no measurements, and the shoe was made from cereal box card to which I added mirri card and black, white and cerise card making card. Ribbon and cheap earring parts. The box was made from acetate I cut to fit, double sided tape, and card making card. Die cuts are some I bought off ebay and the flowers are ones I made.

Holy moley...no pattern? You have an amazing eye for design. I'm sure your granddaughter is very impressed, as am I, with your papercrafting ability. Your box is just as amazing as the shoe and decorations inside! AMAZING job.

WOW Lynn in St Louis and Cook 22 - thank you. I am feeling very humbled by your gracious comments. I made this shoe about 2 years ago now, and still do not quite know myself exactly how I did it, except to say - I literally 'felt' the shoe. I bent the card, smoothed it, creased it and well...here you are.
Thank you both so very much. I have never made a box before this one either! I guess I love a challenge. :0)
