I have a friend
(who is obsessed with the Wizard of Oz)
who teased me
about the Oreo elf shoes
in the previous post.
In an attempt to silence her,
I made her a ruby slipper --
A Wicked Witch of the East
More about that at the end,
first we're going to have
(try saying that 3 times fast)
Double Stuff Oreos
(there are about 33 in a package)
Scotch double sided Scrapbook Tape
7"x11" piece of cellophane
Ribbon, Hole Punch
Put a piece of tape on one long edge of the cellophane.
Put stack of 8 or 9 Oreos on it and
start rolling them in the cellophane.
Tuck in the cellophane
on the left side as you're rolling.
Peel the paper off of the adhesive tape and
just keep rolling over it.
Secure tucked end with tape.
Tape should be hidden by the shoe.
Tie the other end with ribbon.
Using this template, cut a shoe out of red paper.
Because it's Wizard of Oz,
I added some blue gingham!
Put some adhesive Scotch tape in the middle and
on one end of the template. Peel off paper.
Place your Oreos as shown on the tape.
And start rolling the shoe around.
Push on the tape.
Meet up your sides.
Because this scrapbook paper is so thick,
I'm trying to help hold it together by punching holes and
putting a ribbon through.
Next time, I would put another ribbon closer to the
cookies to secure a little better and hold them in place.
This paper is so stiff, it wants to pull away from the cookies.
The paper used for the Elf shoes (below) is posterboard
which is just the right thickness and
stays stuck together with the tape.
And by tying ribbon right by the Oreos, it holds them in place.
Plus the double sided tape inside holds them just fine.
The cookies won't fall out the bottom.
Wanted to make a little bow to go on top.
Cut out bow shape.
To curl it, wrap around a pencil.
I used Super Glue to secure.
Covered up my little knot
with the bow.
I gave the ruby slipper to my friend
along with this note.
