Hey there! A couple of years ago I bought a pair of Chinese Laundry white pointed heels.  A few weeks later I was at Macy's and I saw this really awesome Chanel tissue paper at a Chanel makeup counter.  At once a lightbulb went on. "Why don't I decoupage the white heels with cut up pieces of the tissue paper?!"  SO I did, and this is what turned out.  They used to be perfect, but a weeks worth of going out to crowded dance clubs messed them up a litte, so I took a picture before they got too bad.  OH! To make them I just cut the chanel logos out of the paper, mod podged them onto the shoes, and then when dry I coated them with the mod podge. Hope they inspire you!  Wink

Those look neat.  I'm curious thought, did the mod podge leave them a little bit sticky?  I've considered doing this, but everytime I use mod podge, the surface always stays tacky and collects dust really quickly.

Thanks for the feedback ladies!

Was the tissue paper free?[/b]- It sure was, and so were the free samples!  If you ask they will just give a huge stack of the tissue paper.  I had enough left over to mod pdge a white plastic beaded matching necklace.
Was it sticky afterward?-  Not at all. I let them dry overnight.  I have found that the thinner the coat of mod podge you use, the less sticky it wil be.. Mine aren't sticky at all.

OOOH! Love the Chanel tissue paper. And if THAT works, then you could also use cute paper napkins -- just the top printed layer.
