Directions

 

  1. Center the slippah stencil over the white cardstock (lightly tape down),  and using the blender pen or  pompom apply the thatched straw ink.

  2. Once the ink is dry, stamp over the slippah with the garden pattern rubber stamp and the pink grapefruit ink (mask off areas with scrap paper if necessary).

  3. After the ink is dry, turn the stencil and cardstock over onto the light box.

  4. With the light on use the dry embossing ball tool to emboss the slippah design.

  5. Punch holes in the stenciled design at the point where the ribbon straps will enter (two holes on the left side, three holes on the right).

  6. Cut ribbon in half and fold each piece.

  7. Put the folded ends into the holes at the toe end of the slippers and tape the ribbon on the back of the cardstock.

  8. String the ribbon straps through the remaining holes and tape in the back.

  9. Use the Fabritac glue to fasten down the loose strap on the left slipper (cut the ribbon to fit) and sparingly tack down the other straps.

  10. Color the center of the button flower with the yellow permanent marker.

  11. Glue the button to the ‘slippah’ with the FabriTac.
