Baby Shoe Tutorial w/pattern


Hello Everyone, I wanted to share this tutorial with you. If you want to know more about the designer and other services, page kits or classes they may offer please visit their blog, store or web site. Enjoy!

Around this time every year, either you or someone you know will be hosting a baby shower. And one of the most popular shower favor boxes is the baby shoe. Did you know that you can get this item pre-cut for you? Save the time of cutting it out of a template and use a die cut. Then you can spend all that extra time on shopping for the goodies to put in the favor box.

Supplies:

1 die cut baby shoe containing two soles and one upper shoe,
adhesive - I used Killer Red Tape from Creative Cuts and More, and scissors

Basic Step by Step Assembely Instructions:

Step 1.

Begin by placing small strips of adhesive to the tabs on the upper section of the die cut on the outside.

Step 2.

Gently fold all tabs to the back at the crease.

Step 3.

If using Killer Red Tape, or similar product, remove the red backing from the only tab that is on the end of the die cut and not in line with the remaining tabs. Then wrap the die cut around until both ends meet up at this tab. Once this is done, the die cut should form an eliptical shape and press to secure in place.

Step 4.

If you lay the two soles so that one is resting atop of the other, you will notice that one is slightly smaller than the other. You want to take the smaller of the two soles and slip it into the shoe so that it is resting on the tabs. If using one sided card stock, be sure that the patterened side is facing up and not towards the bottom of the shoe.

Step 5.

Next you will want to remove the remaining bits of red backing from your Killer Red Tape.

Then place the bottom sole upon the longest tab which is on the opposite side of the seam. * Be sure that the pattern is now facing out so that when the shoe is finished you see the pattern or color of the paper used.

Now you can finish securing the bottom sole to the remaining tabs. Be sure to press firmly in place from both the inside and outside of the baby shoe.
