Animal Print Shoe Box

Sending warmest wishes to all on this very chilly Sunday afternoon.  I have been very naughty and neglected my blog recently as I have been concentrating on getting the family Christmas organised.  I think I am almost there and am now just waiting for last minute pressies and shoping to arrive and on to the big day.  I do enjoy the lead up to Christmas.

I am not posting a card today but a box.  This is the next project in my paper shoe obsession.  I have visited many fabulous sites and seen some wonderful shoe projects recently by searching via Goggle on paper shoe images.  There are very creative crafters out there. 

This project has been to make a box to hold a necklace which I bought for my elder daughters Christmas.  Two of her favourite things are shoes and animal print (fake fun fur).  So the shoe above was created to fill this criteria.

I would like to enter this box in the following Challenges:

The box top was made from a sheet of foiled Kanban paper and I have used foiled swirl die cuts on the box and on the shoe.  The wonderful shoe template is from Chocolate Baroque and can be found here.  The animal print card was in my stash and I have used mirror card - gold for  the lining of the shoe.  The underneath of the shoe is made from red mirror card.  I have used lovely beads for the heel and these are held together with thin metal wire.  The flowers are all Spellbinder Rose die cuts made from plain white paper and coloured with Tim Holtz Distress inks and glittered.  I have used a wonderful rich gold ribbon and feathers, lace, embellishments and pins from my stash.  I really hope my daughter likes the finished product.

Showing the die cut vintage stained roses and other embellishments.  I love the colour tones on this shoe.  The central embellishment is a wonderful charm.

Thank you so much for reading this post.  I really hope you like my shoe.  I will hopefully be back later in the week with further posting but in case time disappears, as it tends to do.  Let me take this opportunity to thank you all for your interest in my work in 2011 and to wish you a            Very Happy and Peaceful Christmas and All the Best for 2012.
