More than one fold

That is the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge for today!
 You can do a project or card either one. Our sponsor is   

Creations by AR and she has generously given us each
one of her awesome patterns to use today. Be sure to
 check out her store.I am using the tennis shoe pattern, how fun it that! Her patterns are well marked and she also has a great color guide for assembly.

Tuesday Throwdown Team B has lots of great inspiration for you today so be sure to stop by and join us!!   Adela has given each of us a different pattern to use so there is a fun variety of awesome creations to check out!!

I decided to do the tennis shoe as I have 4 grandchildren I wanted to send a little something. Since 3 are boys thought this would be perfect for them. I have a purple print one for my little granddaughter but its not done yet. Thought I would start with a traditional look one. I used a textured black paper for the shoe itself. I didnt get the pic right but there is even the tongue in the shoe.  The assemble was easy and all the little touches like the little black stripe and label make it special. I punched the holes as labeled on the pattern and laced him up! I wanted to used a different ribbon for the laces but all the cute striped, dots and checks were either too short or to wide! Whats a girl to do, just be thankful I had a white that would work lol!!  Made a cute little gift holder dont you think??


  1. What an adorable little sneaker! Your grand children are going to love receiving these, Davi! Super cute!!

  2. Hi teamie! Great sneak! Love how clear your photos are. You can really see the great texture on the paper. Fun choice!
