May Arts Christmas Boot

 
 This week the May Arts Ribbonistas are hopping along with Scrapbook Adhesives to bring you lots of fun - and of course some prizes.  Be sure to leave comments on any of the blogs participating this week for your chance to win 2 spools of ribbon and an assortment of adhesives.

I recently got a cute pair of leg warmers - but what was even more awesome was the heavy cardboard boot form that they came on!  So this is my upcycled boot.  I used Graphic 45's Twelve Days of Christmas Paper to cover the boot and attached it with the Crafty Power tape.  I wrapped the 1.5" grosgrain ribbon around the boot, and added a layer of patterned paper over the top of it.  I used a Crop-a-Dile to punch holes in the boot, and lace it up with 1/2" Solid/Wrinkled Ribbon.  I fussy cut images from the paper and adhered them with the Crafty Foam tape to finish off my upcycled boot.

Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to leave those comments!

Absolutely gorgeous. It's amazing the things you can find around the house that can be made into a stunning centerpiece. Using the G45 paper was a good idea. It's always so vintage looking. The addition of the ribbons really set it off. thanks for sharing.
