CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Cardstock
  • Gemstones
  • Tissue Paper
  • Adhesive squares

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Start with a 5x7" cream card. Cut turquoise panel at 4-3/4" x 6-3/4". Emboss panel. Cut shoes from white cardstock at 3". Each shoe will be about 2". Cut heels and inserts for shoes from gold metallic CS. For the shoe body, I used a cream print paper. Glue shoe parts together, layering over the white CS and embellish with gem on toes.
The shoe box is cut at 2". Again, cut one from white and one from cream. Trim away lid section and decorate separately. Stamp the cream box and lid in aqua. Mine is a script design.
Flower Layers

The large layer is cut from sparkly pink CS. The smaller layer is cut from white. I then painted the inside of the white petals with a deep rose, leaving the tips white. Curl the edges of the top layers with your fingers. Add a crystal gem to the center of flower. Before gluing down adhering flower, paint the leaves green. Adhere petal layers with pop dots for dimension.
Assemble all parts.

Cut title from gold metallic, at 4". Glue in place. Create a tissue puff, rounding edges and layering as you fold. Tape tissue to back of box. Adhere shoes and box parts using thick adhesive squares. For the heels, I used tiny round pop dots.
