Been busy making some new bootees and made these sweeties with little running rabbits – perfect for the time of year being so close to Easter.
I have the same rabbit theme running (literally, lol) around the top of the box!
The template includes a panel for the aperture (to be cut from acetate or other clear media). I left the acetate out of the box because it makes it difficult to get a good shot of the bootees inside the box – I always end up with shadows and reflections. A little tissue paper in the box would set them off beautifully, don’t you think?
They are little dotes, aren’t they? These are just plain white with a little satin ribbon but could be embellished with pearl beads and other gorgeous things.
A quick close up of the box. The bootees and box are a perfect fit. Not too tight and not too loose. The template includes panel sides, each a couple of mm smaller than each of the four sides. If you make your box from stock that isn’t quite strong enough, you can reinforce them with the panels. This technique offers an economical way of decorating the box with your best paper while using your plainer stock for the box.
Making the bootees isn’t difficult but I have written up step-by-step instructions to ensure first time success and included them as a PDF.
If you’re interested in buying them, they are in my Etsy (Paper Pictures by Ellie Emyn) shop as SVG cutting files.
Thank you for looking.
