Quilling a shoe on a card

Post by admin on 2010-04-26, 00:20

Got an email from our new member Claire from Ireland and she would like to know if anyone has some information on quilling a shoe onto a card? It is for her mother who is shoe mad, if anyone has some suggestions she would love to hear.

Welcome Claire and I hope you get a lot of enjoyment out of this site!

My suggestion is for an easy way and great for beginners. Take a picture from a magazine of a shoe that you like even several. Make several small coils and shape them together over the top of the shoe picture even pinning around the edges to keep it within the bounds of the picture. To finish just glue a strip around the entire perimeter. Try not to get glue on the picture as you want to be able to lift it off and pop it on your card. This is what I have done with the butterfly pattern in the shared pattern area. I hope that helps

This may be of help if you want a high heeled shoe

Those patterns are exceptional, I love that simple one Jocelyn, you could do a heap of shoes all over a card in different colours and add some bling to spruce them up!! Or your's Bronwyn, give it some extra foam blocks and put it on different levels for a different look or even quill over the top of the pattern!!
I saw a picture of an entry in the UK quillers group someone sent me and it was a handbag, shoe and mannequin with a dress all completely quilled. I must drop the quiller a line and ask if we can have a proper photo of it, it was amazing

Welcome Clair!!!

Great tip about the picture and pinning the coils onto it. I have done this a few times, looks great.

If you put the picture in on of those A4 plastic sleaves then stick your coils down pin around etc you wont have to worry about excess glue as the finished quilled item will lift off the plastic.....just a thought.

Hi guys, thanks so much for your help, here's a link to a picture of the shoe I made... I hope this works...

I've been quilling like mad since, I've found a real passion for it. I've been crafting for quite a while, making handmade cards, but I've only in the last few months attempted quilling. And i LOVE it :-)

Congrats Clare on your shoe! You have really captured the shape well. Did it take you long to make? What did your mum think? bet she was surprised after putting so much work into the card!!

Thanks Karon, well to be honest it took me ages!!! I couldn't figure what shapes worked best together, but I'm well pleased with the result. My Mam was shocked and thrilled with the card, he he he... It's my new style of handmade card, and going down a storm :-) Thanks Paula, I've just set myself up on Flickr so I could show you the shoe, so I'll upload new pics of my cards as soon as I can. I have to say, I think now I've found quilling, it just might take over my style of handmade cards :-)

You are so welcome Clare, and don't forget that you can post your pics directly here. If you hover your cursor over the middle button on your tool bar you will see 'host an image' click on this one. Find your pic on your pc by choosing browse then when you have the right one click host it. You will get 3 web addy's come up after approx a minute. right click on the middle one and copy it. After this click host again. Now what you do is paste your info direct to your message where you want it and the pic will come up directly on your post once it has been sent. It will just look like jargon until you do this but you can press preview to get an idea of how it will look
Hope that helps

Thanks Bronwyn, I love it!! I think I will make one for display with my next workshop and the instructions are fantastic and easy to follow which can be half the drama sometimes. I am sure Claire will be trying this one out with her mum. Bronwyn, did you make one? If so how did you go? If anyone else tries it, can you post a pic...this can be the "shoe thread" lol

I was just telling my hubby about the shoe and said I'm thinking about making one, that would be cool if several of us make one and all show how they turned out! Paula

I am just about to go over the destructions and I just remembered an easy way of transferring your pattern to card.
If you trim out your pattern shapes just with a mil or 2 extra on the edges and stick them to your card directly with sticky tape. When you cut around the shape it won't move and the tape just cuts off so you are left with your design shapes. You will get a perfect shape for any patterns as it won't move on you.
I also made the purse shape from Mirkwood design templates and put it into the gallery

Sorry cannot work out how to post in forum so have put my shoe in gallery.
I simply had to sit down and finish it this afternoon
It was fun to do. I used Anna Griffin paper for the front and the heel, with a matching red card stock. I used red ribbon and off white lace. I need to make the front part bigger in my next model .
I can see myself doing a few of these. Wink
I was thinking too, we could do a heel underneath with closed quilling coils.

This gives me an excuse to look for old lace and buttons etc. if i want to do a truly vintage shoe.
I came home from the op-shop the other day with some nice card blanks for $2
