Master class – a shoe for candies
The shoe for candies will have the size of the real shoe. For example, my shoe size is 7.5 (9.3 inches). So if you want to make a miniature shoe, my sketches won’t be good for you.
Print the sketch on A4 paper and scissor it out.
Make two similar parts out of corrugated cardboard. They will be the sole of your shoe.
Attach some scotch double-sided tape on one of these parts.
Then attach three pieces of wire to the scotch tape.
Spread the hot glue all over the surface of the part and attach the second part to it. You should do all this very quickly.
Give the following shape to the sole of your shoe.
Make a triangular from expanded polystyrene. This will be a plateau for your shoe. Put the sole on the polystyrene and encircle it in order to give this part the right size.
The height of this part is 1.3 cm (0.5 inches). Give this polystyrene part the shape of the plateau.
Make the heel from polystyrene according to the sketch.
Polish the polystyrene parts with sandpaper.
Put some wire into the heel in order to make it stable.
Glue some thin cardboard to the sole of the shoe.
Cut out all the parts you don’t need.
Then attach the plateau to the sole with the help of hot glue.
Glue one layer of thin cardboard and cut out all the unuseful parts according to the shape of the sole.
Glue some corrugated paper to the heel and the sole. I have chosen silver corrugated paper, but it’s up to you to choose the color for yourself.
I covered the lower side of the sole with some bright green corrugated paper.
I chose some red corrugated paper for the upper side of the sole.
Then attach the heel to the sole with the help of the hot glue.
Decorate the joins with narrow ribbon.
You can use anything for decoration. As for me, I chose artificial flowers, wire and white narrow ribbon.
At last, your shoe for candies is ready!
