In the Beginning.....

Just a short post this morning to show you a little project that I did for the June 2009 Dirty Dozen gallery.

The theme was "In the Beginning" and I put together these little favours!  I found the template here at Quietfire Designs and it was quite simple - a lot of cutting but so worth it!

They are a teeny pair of shoes complete with a little buckle on the side that does up (with the help of glue dots!) perfect for filling with chocolate for those gals, like me, that love to snack away at a shower!

Paper: Scenic Route
Ink: Tombow marker for faux stitching
Accessories: Prima flower, kaisercraft pearls, Martha Stewart punch

  2. Omigosh, these are darling! I 'need' that template! Thanks for inspiring me to try this ... hope they come out half as cute as yours!

    Bonnie, have just found your blog and these absolutely adorable baby shoes. We don't have baby showers in the UK, but as a soon to become nana later this year for the very first time, they have tugged at my heart strings. I can imagine the cutting must have been huge, but soooooooo worth it. These are darling. Petal
