Saw these long skate boots on michele made me blog yesterday and HAD to make a pair. They are so stinkin’ cute and just perfect accessories for a little present wrapped in chicken scratch paper (think I gave away the ABR for this graphic a while ago so you could make your own).
I just LOVE them! You can just see the heel of a red pair in the top-right of the pic… which means there’s a production line going on cos these will be perfect as tree decs for Christmas, as gift tag ornaments, without the skates will dress up any girlie present. I had to get my skates on!
BUT why stop at Christmas?! Chop the heels down and turn them into brogues and they butch-bling a guy present… or turn them into platform soles and they’re glam rock accessories…They’re just ab-so-lutely GORJUSS!
The salt dough heart was one I made last Christmas. Painted with acrylics, Threaded through with raffia and varnished. Bit sad next to the wonderful tooty booties!
