I brought out my Halloween shoes that I only wear during the month of October the other day. I have had them for many years.
Zoulah turned green with envy. See she's green! You see Zoulah has shoe envy.
Well, since I am a good witch caretaker I decided to make Zoulah some new Halloween shoes. She was so excited to have some new shoes.
Zoulah feels like these shoes are the perfect little container for yummy treats for friends, teachers, luncheons. They whip up really quickly, require few items to make and are just soooo cute! We gave them out last year filled with homemade licorice caramels. Click HERE for recipe.
Witchie Shoe Instructions:
-- One 8.5 x 11 piece of heavier scrapbook paper -- it is best to use cardstock. This is for the outer shoe.
-- One 8.5 x 11 piece of lighter scrapbook paper -- This is for the lining.
-- Glue gun and glue
-- Ribbon and buttons and other goodies for adornment
-- Candy to fill
Click HERE for the template; this will link you to the Skip to My Lou blog where I found this last year. These were designed by Ellen Hutson. Copy the templates directly on the scrapbook paper -- that's tough if your paper is black. You can also copy them off and then cut out the templates and trace the templates on your scrapbook paper. Just follow the lines for folding and put it together. It really comes together quite quickly after the first one --- and my 10th grade geometry teacher would tell you I wasn't the brightest in his class. Adorn with cute bows, buttons, etc. Fill with yummy candy.
These little shoes are so versatile. My church Activity Day girls made these for their moms for Mother's Day. They would be also cute for Christmas or Valentine's Day.
