Halloween Shoes & Shoe Box

Back In April I had gone to a workshop at Joan's Gardens
 and she had
just received some of her new winter CHA items....
one of the items were the new Brenda Walton Sizzix Bigz dies....
 
 
When I saw the "ballroom slippers" I just had to have it....
 
This is the first time I have really had the time to play with it....
 
 
I decided to make a pair of Halloween shoes to display with my other Halloween décor....
I have a ton of Halloween stamps, papers and such
, but last year I hardly used any of it....
so it was fun to get an early start !!
 
 
There is a "youtube" about making a box for these shoes by
 "Live Love Scrap"
and they are super easy to make.....
the only thing I learned about the shoe itself is,
 if using the heel, you need to place it
in further from the back to make it stand up better.....
I made the flowers on the shoe with ribbon
and I know it is hard to tell,
but I added a bat on a wire coil in the middle
of the flower!
The star on the box is a paper mache one that I
painted back and then added glitter.....
 
 
I am entering this in the challenge at 
to "make the cut"
meaning use dies, punches, etc.....
