Flower Sandal

** 8/13/17 Sweet Sprinkles Award Winner at Pile It On! **

Hi everyone! Happy Friday – hope you’ve had an amazing week! Mine has been great – life is pretty darn good these days! Today is my post day on the Dare 2B Artzy blog and I’m happy to share a DT inspiration project using three papers from the Fields of Joy Collection Paper Pack – Orange Plaid, Hoot Hoot and Owls & Flowers. This is my last post for the Dare 2B Artzy design team and I thank these ladies for this amazing opportunity – I’ve had such a good time! I’ll be back as a guestie in a few months! ;)

Cindy, owner of Dare 2B Artzy, asked me to create a sandal for her to take to craft shows for display, and this adorable sandal is what I came up with. I created a flip flop template several years ago that I use to make the flip flops and other sandals in my paper shoe collection which you can find HERE if you’re interested in looking.  This sandal has a heel, however, and the others do not (template has no heel) but I will soon update my template to include the optional heel.


I targeted a pink and red flower and cut out several of them to layer the different pieces. I added some clear Morning Dew Crystal Drops to the largest pink layer and several tiny silver seed beads (adhered with the Crystal Drops) to the center of the flower for a ‘jeweled’ effect.


I have such a shoe fetish and sure wish I could make my own shoes! I’d have a gazillion pairs, lol! So pleased with how this turned out!


Here’s one last shot… of the sole. :)
