Beach Shoes

Hello.  Welcome.  The Craft Barn have a challenge for shoes.  Now I got a paper mache mini sandal box in a goodie box from The Craft Barn many moons ago.  This seemed the idea opportunity to give it a make over.  

I didn't check the before pictures and they were too blurred to use so we are moving right along to the finished sandal.  I painted the bottom of the box blue and stamped with Dylusions fish stamp.  I painted the top yellow and stuck on some white sand.  I die cut Sizzix phrase A Day At The Beach from gold card and stuck that round the edge of the sandal.  Then I spent ages looking for one of those cocktail umbrellas!!!   I know there is one kicking around here somewhere but I was in hiding.  Then I remembered I had some beach themed buttons.  Perfect!!  Here's a view of the sand dollar, surfboard and fins.  

The sunglasses, tanning oil bottle and the umbrella.

The rest of the sentiment.  I had two umbrella buttons so I was able to take one apart and make my umbrella double sided.
