Paper Shoe Craft


This is an easy and super fun paper shoe craft to make! My sister-in-law made these paper shoes as a sort of a party favor for a gathering she was having. Once a few of them had been crafted, it was fairly simple to whip them out pretty quickly. Each shoe takes about one 12×12 sheet of patterned paper and 20 minutes of your time. The directions are easy and these shoes can be crafted for any season, theme or party you are having!

    What a fun project! These are so cute I want to plan a party around them, lol! :) Thanks for linking up at our Home Improvement Party!

    I love to make paper shoes and purses. I love paper crafts anyway but mostly shoes and bags. I was so pleased to see this template offered for which I’m sure grateful. Don’t see too many crafts involving shoes/purses, the shoes are great.. Happy summer

    These shoes are too cute! I am an apparel design teacher at the high school level. These will make a great beginning of the year activity for my students. Instead of patterned paper, we will use white card stock and students will design their shoe to introduce themselves to their classmates, reflecting their personal interests and abilities. Should be lots of fun! Hopefully I won’t have any guys or I will have to find a shoe template that is more masculine in design!
