I saw this adorable pair of ballet flats on Etsy done up all glittery and geeky.  I wanted them really bad, but not for the asking price.  Being my crafty self, I went out and made my own pair for much less.  I actually found a pair of glittery ballet flats at Payless, so the messiest part was already done for me.  I did also get a plain pair for another project later on. 
I drew my design onto the shoe first, and then used modge podge to adhere the glitter.  After the red rebel symbols dried enough, I painted a thin black line around the outer edge to make it pop more.  I then added the glittery stripes on the sides and hit up newly done areas with some acrylic sealer spray.  None of that glitter is coming off, even after scraping with my fingernail.

I have a thing for showing off my geeky ways, but I still want to look somewhat fashionable ;-)  I want to get a finer glitter for my next pair of shoes, I'll probably try that Martha Stewart glitter I read about in other glitter shoe posts.

I love these! I think it's great how you got to bypass the first step of making them glittery allover... I love the rebel logo and can't wait to see more!

I just saw these same pair today and fawned over them. I love how these came out, they look wonderful!
 I think I'll try my hand at making them too, the price is a bit steep for flats.
