Cinderella’s Glass Slipper Craft

Last week a few bloggers got together for a Craft Hangout where we talked about great Fairytale Craft ideas. The Girls and I made some really lovely Rapunzel bookmarks. I also showed a Cinderella’s Glass Slipper Craft on the hangout.

It’s super simple to make. I tried making it out of a clean recycled milk carton (the plastic ones, not the Tetrapak kind) but it wasn’t as transparent as I wanted. It’s a Glass Slipper after all.

So I ran a laminator sheet through my laminator which gave a totally transparent yet solid sheet to work with.

Using the Paper Witch Shoe template I found on Skip To My Lou, I cut out the shape and folded it along the lines indicated. I stuck it all down using sellotape dots and added a ribbon bow. The dots were visible in places but the effect was definitely right and the girls didn’t complain at all.

They would make a fabulous Princess Party favour or place setting: you could even make them for a fairytale wedding if you wanted.

    You clever girl! (I just accidentally typed git!) This is perfect for my Niece’s so I’m stealing your idea and pretending it was all mine.

    Oh it’s so lovely. My girls would adore it.

    I use acetate when I needed a clear sheet. It’s what you use in overhead projectors. I hadn’t thought of using a laminated sheet.

      Thanks Anthea. And thank you Rebecca. I didn’t have any plain acetate so had to think of an alternative! They’d look pretty made in coloured acetate too.


Go on! You know you want to tell me what you think!
