Sweet Witch Shoes

Here is another project for the Cricut Circle's Blogiversary.  The Challenge: Create a project of your choice using your Cuttlebug machine as the main focus. Your project must include at least 2 different Cricut Image Cuts. 
This is an easy favor to make with just one cut from Princess Party and a buckle form Fabulous Finds Cricut cartridges.  For a more sensible witch shoe, I cut a 1 1/2 in circle to make a closed toe shoe and glued the circle at the base of the shoe folding it to cover the open toe.  I cut the purple rose from flower shoppe.  The shoe cut was cut at seven inches.  I cut another shoe and cut the surfaces that show on the outside of the shoe to roll through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder.  The buckle was de-bossed with Tiny Bubbles folder to give it a hammer metal look.

Scrappin with the bug said...

So so adorable. I love the shoes. I love how you used Oreos... to make the socks. I bet you could find the orange ones and those would be pretty in there too.

Great job. Congrats on making project of the day the other day.

Karen said...

I love your witch shoes, they are soo cute! I don't have a cricket or cuddle bug machine. is there a way I can make this without one? I would really like to try, any help appreciated! possiblykaren@gmail.com Thanks!

Deniece Carmean said...

Ok, I want to make these but I don't get how you make the base of the shoe. I understand how to make the buckle but how do you make the base.

Since some of us don't have a machine to do the cutting, could you open up one of the shoes to show us what it looks like flat? I would like to try to replicate it. Very cute idea!!

Hi Melissa...these are darling! I don't have a creative bone in my body. Do you sell these? I'd be willing to pay! I'm needing #80! (for my daughters & nieces classmates!)
I'm serious! If you're interested, please email me & I'll give you my contact information & send payment to you!!!!

I really really really wanna make these, but I don't have any of the tools you listed. I agree with the last couple of comments. Do you know how to replicate it without the cuddle bug? I would really appreciate it out flat as well. Jenna.Buchanan@gmail.com

I also would love to make these as a Thank You gift for our RS Meeting next month for those speaking but I don't have the tools.
Is there a pattern that you could email me?

Robin said...

Just found these shoes. Simply adorable! I do not have the tools you mentioned. Do you have a template you can email me? Thanks

Melissa said...

Sorry Robin, I do not have a pattern. Thanks for visiting :)

Such a cute idea! I pinned info on how to make a paper shoe earlier this year. This shoe could be used for this project. I found it on my board and here is the website with a pattern and instructions: http://www.allthingsthrifty.com/2012/02/paper-shoe-treat-for-sole-mate.html.
Hope this helps.
