I found these paper mache shoes on clearance for 50 cents each. Now that
is a bargain! I love doing swaps and little crafty gifts and thought these shoes decorated would make great containers for all sorts of small craft goodies to share.
I decorated this one with my craft buddy Martha in mind. It has images that reflect things we have in common and our individual interests. The angel-in-a-heart embellishment on the lid I made from UTEE, a bit of clip art, and some micro beads. I laid the beads and trimmed clipart in the bottom of a silicon heart-shaped petifore baking pan. I poured a bit of melted UTEE on top and voila! I made a bunch of these little heart-shaped embellishments. They are fun.
Inside the lid is a "mirror" made of UTEE. There are no pictures of that little jewel here as that surprise is left for the recipient.
I then filled the decorated shoe with various fun craft goodies and sent it on to its new home. I hope she delights in it as much as I delighted in making it.
