well i needed sparkly shoes to wear with my gold dress so i decided to bling up a pair of black ones. i’d already done a pair with royal blue sparkly heels. I had the gold in my bits and bobs drawer so i set to it. i added a strip to the front as well and they turned out well x

Material Notes

gold sparkle card like fabric
glue gun, cling film cellotape and a marker

      Hi byanka,
      the company i got the card from is josyrose.com. you will be spoiled for choice by the colours. I also bought one thats blue and green which is gorgeous. What i did was, i wrapped cling film round the heel. Then i cellataped it. I used a marker and drew on the clingfilm the heels outline. Then i cut up the inside of the template. Next flatten it out and cut round the black marker and voila you have a perfect copy of your heels. Just pop it on top of the glitter card/fabric and cut then apply with a hot glue gun. About £7 on ebay and worth it. Then stand back and wait for all the ooohs and ahhhh’s when you wear them lol x
