Hi everyone! I’m back with another project that I am so excited over. I have long wanted to revisit some of the diecuts that I have in my collections that I haven’t used in years. I was inspiration by @mintycraftsbycharlie on Instagram over the tennis shoe she created from cardstock and since I have the 3D Shoe Diecut #658987 (retired) that is by Eileen Hull I thought why not try and make a tennis shoe for myself?
I applied Adhesive Sheets to both sides of a piece of Mat Board and cut and placed patterned cardstock on both sides of the piece of mat board before placing on top of the shoe diecut and running through the Diecut Machine.
I shaped, folded the tabs and adhered the sides of the shoe diecut to the soul diecut.
I folded the bottom tab, shaped the “tongue diecut” and adhered to the front opening of the shoe.
I laced up the shoe with ribbon to keep the shape of the shoe while I worked on the “toe area”. I used a scalloped circle diecut (I used a Spellbinder’s diecut that is retired) which I cut 3/4 of it in half and the other half I glued to the back heel. I started by adhering a small portion of the scalloped circle diecut to the toe.
I cut on either side of the scalloped circles of the diecut.
I glued the scalloped circles to either side of the shoe making sure I shaped (rounded) the toe as I applied adhesive.
I also added tissue to the inside of the toe so if it got bumped it wouldn’t loose it shape.
I added patterned cardstock and trim around the bottom of the shoe.
I added gems to the scalloped circle diecut, a tab and fussy cut butterfly to the back.
I used two different sized circle punches, fussy cut rose and I adhered all to the tongue of the shoe. So what do you think? As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
