Just add shoelaces!

Just add shoelaces!

This cute shoe uses corrugated paper for the sole, and of course, some leather look for the shoe. Add some eyelets, distress the edges just a bit and tie on your shoelaces!  If cutting shapes is not your thing,  cut out a shoe silhouette from your favorite catalog.  You could have a template for any kind of shoe you wanted!

Paper Notes …

  • The corrugated is an easy weight to cut and work with, while it has the look of a heavier paper, it is really quite light. I would think it would die cut cleanly, and I found that cutting it with a scissors was very easy.
  • The leather look is a substantial and embossed finish, just slightly light reflective,  think eggshell finish paint in place of matt. It was very easy to work the eyelets into and did not seem flimsy at all.
