Witches Boot Tutorial

Hello! Today I want to share with you this quick and easy little project I created for the store's Make n Take that I taught last weekend.

This witches boot would make a great element to your Halloween scrapbook page or wall collage.


1 sheet orange cardstock

1 sheet black cardstock

12" strip of ribbon

hole punch


First print and cut out boot pattern. Then trace onto black cardstock and cut out.

Take hole punch ( I used a small sized hole punch) and cut five holes up the side of your boot.
Then take ribbon and pull it half way through the bottom hole.

Start wrapping ribbon around boot all the way up.

Here is what it looks like as you are wrapping.

Then turn the boot to the back and pull other half of ribbon up through the loops till ribbon meets up at the top and tie bow.

Now cut a 6 1/2 x 2 1/4 strip out of orange cardstock.

Cut 1 1/4 x 2 1/4 strip out of black cardstock.

Take black strips and just start separating and gluing the two strips evenly. One end of the orange cardstock should be slightly longer.

Glue the slightly longer end to the top of the top of your Witches boot and you're done!

I hope you like this little project and try making it!
