So I was in H&M, lurking in the sale section.
I found a pair of icky looking black flats that were a bit loose on me for $5.

So here they are now:

The bows are made from Perler beads. I'm glad I finally found a use for them.


Look! A leaf!


There was supposed to be a heart, but then again there wasn't.


Yup, that's pretty much it.

I used:
A free (uber-lame) issue of Cosmogirl!,
Mod Podge,
Perler Beads,
and a hair straightener (instead of an iron because my mom is evil)

Hope you liked it 0:D

They turned out great!  I would never have thought of using perler beads and make bow for a shoe but gives the shoes both a punch of color and unique texture.

Man the Perler bow is pretty much genius.

I also like how the pieces of paper aren't actually photos of things, but instead of textures and colors.

You did a really fantastic job on these! Love the graphics. So how are they holding up? Any cracking or anything...

Okay, these are just amazing!  The perler bow, and the fact that you used a hair straightener to make it just tickle me so.  Too darling!
