As promised in my post, Whimsical Slippers, here is the tutorial to make these cute, one of a kind, slippers in ten easy steps.

I apologize that most of these pictures are dark and golden.  It was crafting at night and had limited lighting.

Step 1:  Buy a pair of basic black slippers in your size.  (I bought these at the Dollar General Store for $6)

Step 2:  Cut purple felt to fit top of slipper.

Step 3:  Cut 10 white petals, 10 red petals, 18 hot pink petals and 4 green leaves.  I cut multiples at a time.

Step 7:  Hot glue hot pink flower petals together to make  dimensional flower.  First put a dab of hot glue and the bottom of each petal and pinch together to make dimension, then glue all nine petals together to form flower.  (Note, the pointed end of the petal is cut off so the petals can fit together nicely.

Step 8:  Using Liquid Fusion, pipe glue onto middle of hot pink flower and sprinkle small clear beads in to center.  Let dry for 2 hours.
