I heard about My Pink Stamper's all day challenges, so decided I really wanted to submit a project. With the first challenge being a Mother's Day project, I immediately went to work thinking. It's a long-long story but, while thinking on a project to do over a cup of coffee, this project idea actually came from looking down at my feet. Yep, they look that bad!!!
Although this project is really simple, as much as I tried, I couldn't get it done in an hour -- YIKES!!! It's taken me almost 3 hours; however, I understand I can still enter it in the challenge.
My project is a pamper foot set which includes a card, a pair of spa slippers, a nail file with matching case, and a bottle of nail polish. And, yes, other than the ribbon trims and the rhinestone, it's all paper!!!
- I traced my own foot onto a piece of paper and used it as a template to cut the bottom of the spa slippers onto a piece of black cardstock. (I used 3 layers of black cardstock for the soles.)
- For the toppers to the slippers, I used strips of velver paper ( I measured across the top of my own foot to get the length and width).
- I glued the toppers to the bottom soles and reinforced the soles by attaching the other 2 soles. This also hides where the ribbon was glued/attached to the first bottom sole.
- Next, I added the lace ribbon trim to the tops and bottoms of the toppers; I then added a ribbon bow which I topped off with a rhinestone.
I didn't have any foam available, but I'm going to cut out another bottom sole using crafting foam and attach to the bottom of the slippers eventually, and I'll also probably do a cut.file for the slippers and file case when I have some time -- you might want to make a note to look out for it!
Wow!!! I really finished this in just a matter of several hours. Talk about pressure!!! Talk about challenging!!! The card and file case only took minutes to complete, the most time was tracing the slippers template and getting the pieces cut out, and getting the other materials together. After that it was a breeze!!! I hope everyone enjoys my My Pink Stamper's Challenge #1 easy-peasy Mother's Day project!!!
I'll be seeing you!
