I saw this idea at my friends house and had to share. Elf Shoes on a bag, it's so cute! She go the idea from Becky Roberts.Want to make your own? Here's how I made them for the bags, but you could also make cards, tags and more with this idea! I used bags I got at a craft store.
Step 1 - Use your Big Shot and Top Note Die
Step 2 - cut it into the pieces shown
Cut in half and use 1 half for the elf bottom
Cut off a section of the other half (long strip that you will not need), and cut shorter end in half the other way (see photo)
Step 3 - Use a Textured Embossing Folder on the top half
Step 4 - Punch the 2 bottom pieces with the Extra Large Oval Punch, (used to be called the Wide Oval Punch) punch out a small piece so it looks more like shoes (see the right image above).
To shape the shoe tops you only need to punch a small part of your die cut.
Here's another image to explain the cuts.
When you are done you have his bottom and 2 shoes. Plus a strip of Trim The Tree Designer Series Paper (DSP) Stack (only $6.95 for 48 sheets, double-sided) for each leg and 2 circles for the tops of his shoes. I used 1/2" strips for the legs and the 1/2" circle punch for the circles on top of the shoes.
I used Sticky Strip for the Cherry Cobbler pieces. Fast Fuse for the DSP strips that make his legs. Dimensionals for the small Garden Green circles. Dimensionals are only $3.95 for 300 dots! It's a great deal, I use them ALL the time!
Tie it off with a ribbon at the top and a tag too.
I used Cherry Cobbler 1" Sheer Linen Ribbon, but there are LOTS of Pretty Stampin'Up! Ribbons you can use to finish off your projects.
