I used Ramitos and Amor Eterno from Sabor's Amor collection to alter the Bride's Wedding Shoes. Ready? Vamos a empezar!
Wedge shoes were easier to work with and they provided more space to design. I used a piece of copy paper to create the template. I made 4 templates in total, 1 each for the sides, front and the back of the heel. I used 3 sheets of 12" x 12" paper, depending on the size and height of the shoe this will vary. I used the Ramitos paper for the wedge cut out the hearts from the Amor Eterno paper.
I applied a generous amount of Mod Podge directly to the cork heel. A light coat of glue to the backside of the paper, this made the paper to work with since it's 80# card stock you don't want it tearing.
After I covered the wedge of the shoes, I applied 3 coats of Mod Podge to help prevent any paper tears or scratches. After the glue completely dried, I then applied a strand of braided jute to the mid section of the shoe with hot glue.
Next, I took my eBrush machine to airbrush a couple of Prima flowers with Sharpies.
I fussy cut the bride and groom from the Amor Eterno paper, glued with matte Mod Podge. I then took a rhinestone mesh and cut a strand of rhinestones and outlined the heart. I then finished up the heart with small flowers.
I cut additional strands of rhinestones and hot glued them to the upper edge of the shoes.
I carefully cut the buckle on the side of the shoe, hot glued the airbrushed flowers on top of green tulle and finished it off the center with a large rhinestone.
Only one side of the each shoe was decorated with La Novia y El Novio.
