I went to a baby shower the other Saturday. I brought home some extras of these cute favors that were given out and my kids said that they HAD to go on the blog. Can you tell how the booties were made?
They are made from Styrofoam cups cut, folded, and glued together (if anyone has seen an on-line tutorial–I’m sure there must be one–let me know). The bow and bling are hot glued on, and then the booties are filled with candy and goodies. I talked to Aubrey who made the booties and she said they were really easy and super-inexpensive! The most expensive part was the candy to put inside. Of course, the booties could be embellished with any ribbon (shoelaces for a boy?) or cute stuff that would fit your party theme. It always makes me happy to see inexpensive creativity!
Special thanks to my nine-year-old for playing Vanna White for me!
UPDATE: Thanks to Me and the Boys for finding a tutorial for me (knew it was out there somewhere). For detailed instructions go to the Creative Baby Shower Ideas website here.
