Pointy Paper Witches Shoes

It is no secret... I love to make stuff. With my grandson in kindergarten this year, I volunteered to be one of the "room mothers" of his class room. I know right? lol.... The first party of the school year is fast approaching. I wanted to make some party favors to pass out to everyone in the class.... so I whipped up some pointy witches shoes to fill with candy. I had to make several prototypes to come up with something that would pass as a pointy shoe. Here it is in all its colorful glory.

 I made the pattern for a pointy witches shoe, then scanned it to my computer and then simply cut 12x12 halloween scrapbooking paper down to 8 1/2x11 and printed the pattern directly to it. Easy-peasy.


 The hardest part was cutting out all of the pieces... gluing it together was tricky but I quickly found ways to speed that up as well.

I made a total of 34 pointy witches shoes...... Which I filled with candy :-)

I used black netting cut to 12 inch lengths to hold four pieces of candy tied up with black and white curling ribbon with a plastic spider ring to top it off....
I also made a two tiered shoe stand to transport the halloween goodies to my grandsons classroom....

I think they turned out rather cute!

I'll share the pointy witches shoe template and directions soon :-)
