With Halloween just around the corner, why not put your stash of BasicGrey papers to work and create a one of a kind holiday decor piece?  These witch booties created by BG design team member Jennifer Beason are the perfect statement piece to dress up your mantle or coffee table.


Using the boot template provided, trace then transfer 2 boot images onto 3/4″ thick MDF board. (The finished size of each boot is about 8 1/2″ x 9.”) Cut them out using a jig-saw or scroll saw.

If you are not comfortable using wood and a saw, you could always cut the boots out of raw chipboard instead, or even create a card using the template. This project would be great for Christmas as well. Just imagine some little elf booties made out of the Nordic Collection.

Use a pencil to draw in the details of the boot on the cutout. Then begin covering the surface and outer edge of the heel with patterned paper.

Next, trace out the tongue area of the boot and transfer it to patterned paper. Stitch along the top edge, before adhering to the boot.

Trace the image of the heel area and sole of the boot onto some tracing paper, then transfer it to some raw chipboard. Cut the pieces out and cover with patterned paper. Layer the two pieces together as shown, then add some stitched detailing to the edge of the heel area.

Cover the remaining surface area of the boot with patterned paper, cover the sides, then adhere the sole.

Using a Silhouette Digital Cutter (or your die cutting machine of choice), cut 2 small skulls from patterned paper and apply one to each boot.

Next, cut 3 3/4″ strips of patterned paper and stitch along the edges. Adere the strips to the boot as shown.

To create the buckle, use a small chipboard frame. Paint the surface and sides of the frame and allow to dry. Apply glue then glitter to the frame, when dry adhere to the boot.

Repeat steps 2 – 8 for second boot.


Thanks, Jennifer for the added dose of holiday inspiration!

    fatigue in muscles and tendons, a number of tender spots on the
    body, morning stiffness, short-term memory loss, headache, insomnia.

    Alt text allows you to describe to users who hover their mouse over an
    image what they’re seeing, but for SEO, it also gives the

    able to purchase the products.

    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time deciding between

    My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  10. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the easiest
    thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that they
    just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top
    and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    turning into a piece of you know what.
