Dynamic Duos #55 - Shoes!

Happy Saturday!  I've created something a little different for this Dynamic Duos Challenge #55.  If you've followed my blog for a while, you've seen some of the shoes I've created from card stock or patterned paper.  Well, it's been a I decided to pull out the template and see if I still remember how.  I do!

These are the colors that Lesley chose for this week.  So pretty, aren't they?
My shoes ~

I'm pleased with how these turned out, but it took me quite a while to make them.  It seems I was a little out of practice!  I created each flower from 5 die cuts.  I folded each die cut in half, then in half again. I stapled the tip with my tiny attacher, then hot-glued these to a 3/4" circle of card stock. The 5th folded die cut was glued into the center, where the points of the others meet.  It might sound difficult, but it wasn't.

I'll be listing these shoes in my Etsy shop soon.  Here's the link.

I hope you like my project for this week's challenge.  Now, I hope you'll click over to my team mate's blogs and check out their creations.  They're all so very talented AND a fun group of crafters to play with!

Card stock: raspberry ripple, wisteria wonder (SU)
Dies/punches: beautiful blooms die set (PTI), 3/4" round punch (SU)
Template: high heel shoe template (
