Princess shoe favor box

**Ignore the UGLY desk and crap in the background. I'm at work still**
These are the little lovelies that I used the spray adhesive on.
The twins' 3rd birthday party is Sunday. It is princess themed (or queen themed if you ask Twin A). I saw a similar version of this shoe favor box done up to be a witch's shoe for Halloween. I thought they would be awesome made over into princess shoes! I was right.
They aren't 100% finished, hence the untrimmed edges and whatnot. I won't be able to post for the weekend as I'll be busy but wanted to get these up. The shoe template can be found here.
The shoe lining template here.
I cut the shoes out of white poster board and the lining is just colored paper. You can certainly doll these up depending on what papers or card stocks you use.
I did a few with spray glitter and was not impressed with the results. Enter the spray adhesive. I used that and some glitter. I liked the results.
I added a little gem to each shoe to finish them off.
Me-thinks 3 yr olds will not really appreciate the effort that went into these, but I had fun.
I will hopefully be able to post what I'm filling these little lovelies with later.
