Create these little Elf Shoes with Spellbinders and use them for any ocassion you like.
Sometimes you may just need a quick, spur of the minute card and all you have are bits and pieces lying in your craft stash .... Panic!!
This could be the solution and all they take are a few pices of left over card and paper.
They are so easy to make, and a very cute novelty addition to your cards that are sure to bring a smile to your recipients face.
The Spellbinders that I have used are Labels Eight ... and from the largest die you can create two pairs of shoes.
I have also used two circle dies that will give me a cut of 5cms to shape the shoe and 2.5cms where the ankle would fit inside the shoe.
But if you prefer you can use punches or bought circles if you don't have the dies.
And although I have made mine for Chrisitmas they are cute enough to add to a card for any ocassion, and especially good for male cards.
There are many more ideas for you to try in Novelty Cards and they are mostly made from circles and oval shapes that are easy to put together for a variety of creatures.
And many of them are fun ideas that your children will enjoy making ... especially on a wet afternoon.
The short video will take you step by step through how to make these for your self, and then you can add any embellishments that you have in your "Stash"
It is such a simple idea but just another way to think outside the box.
Spellbinders are a considered purchas and so you need to get as much as you can from them and make any dies that you have work for you.
Just get the old brain box working and see what you can come up with.
