Friday! Friday! Friday! I have always loved Fridays. Even as a kid. The promise of the weekend is almost better than the weekend itself.
And it's Mother's Day weekend. We have a very full couple of days planned. We decided to take the kids out to Palm Springs to enjoy some heat and play in the fancy pool at the hotel. We don't want to live in the blazing heat, but we like to visit for a couple days every now and then.
I want to share an idea for a really super quick and easy last minute Mother's day gift.
I first made these super cute paper high heel shoes for a church party. I was given the pattern and we made like 70 of them. I think they make a perfect gift for a mom, and paired with my pattern for a little paper purse, they are just too cute.
12X12 sheet 80lb craft paper (paper printed on both sides is best)
Embellishments (buttons, ribbon, cabochons, die cuts, etc.)
Trace template onto paper and cut out. Fold on dotted lines. Glue together. Embellish. Fill with goodies.
I think it is cute to use coordinating papers for the purse and the shoe if you are giving them as a set.
You can download the template for the shoe here.
