Here’s a fun technique to transform plain shoes into pretty shoes! Hand-painted tissue paper can be easily collaged onto shoes, boots and any cool footwear. Tiffany Windsor was inspired to transform these thrift store sandals in pretty shades of pink – perfect for a springtime walk. Featured on Cool2Craft TV.

Dip finger into Aleene’s Collage Pauge and rub it over the surface of the tissue until most wrinkles have been pushed out. I prefer to cut off excess along sides (rather than folding them to the back side because any wrinkles can potentially rub your foot.) Let dry completely.
