Lots of Fun Baby Shower Ideas to Make Your Party Planning Easy, Successful and Memorable!
One dixie cup, or styrofoam cup – for each bootie you want to make
Decorative cutting scissors (optional)
Ribbon or lace
Clear fingernail polish
Acrylic sparkle glaze or varnish
Cut an inch or so off the top of the cup using decorative scissors or with a regular pair of scissors cut with a rolling motion. Starting at the top of the cup cut a slit down towards the bottom stopping about 1″ from the bottom of the cup. Make another slit the same way about 1 1/2″ from the first. The little section between the two slits is the tongue of the bootie. Push the tongue back towards the center and bring the flaps over the tongue. Punch holes down both sides going through both layers. Place some clear nail polish inside the holes and let dry. (This helps keep them from ripping apart when the ribbon is tied.) Paint your booties with sparkle glaze and let dry (optional). Then run ribbon through the holes just as you would a shoe and tie. Now you can fill your shoes with mints, candy, or nuts. So cute!
