Elf Shoes How-To- Make

Many of you asked yesterday for a quick how to on the elf shoes, so here you go...

Cut the Top Note die-cut into 4 parts at each point. You'll need a 3/4" punch and the Ornament punch.

Find the 2 straight sides of each piece. Punch half of the 3/4" circle on the top, closest to the 2 straight sides. Next lay the ornament punch on the side and use the neck of the ornament 'hanger' as a guide to position the punch as close to the 3/4" circle as you can get.

Sponge the edges of the shoes with Early Espresso ink and a stampin' sponge.

The toes are 1/2" circle punches of Red Glimmer paper. Bows are 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon and the socks are 5/8" x 2-1/2" of Holly Berry Designer Series Paper.

Stampin' Up has announced that the stocking punch will not be carried over to the new catalog. Once the inventory is depleted, it will no longer be available.

Get it while it lasts!

The item number for the punch is #120495 and it is $16.95. You can order it through me, or through my SU! website, HERE.

The Stitched Stockings matching stamp set can be found in the Holiday Mini Catalog.

Clear mount item number is #123784 and is $19.95.
