Shoes, Glorious Shoes

Have a look at these gorgeous numbers.

Would you believe paper shoes?
Now before you start asking "what would one do with a pair of paper shoes?" remember this is craft we're talking about - the land at the top of the faraway tree where all things made are quite beautiful but probably have little to add to the pragmatic side of life.  It's all about making gorgeous things to look at.

If you are of the practical nature, then I have found something useful that can be done with some Shoes.  Eat them!!

The templates for these shoes were cut out using the Gazelle Diecutter.  The shoes are made up of three parts which are easily assembled using double-sided sticky tape. 

::Trivia Fact::
Did you know that in the original story of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, by L Frank Baum, Dorothy's shoes were silver?
The film makers changed the colour to red so that there would be more of a contrast between the yellow brick road and the shoes.
