I was looking in a magazine and there was a template for these little bootees. I downloaded it and took into into the Serif software. From there I took into cut out studio and got rid of all the back ground. exported it as a png file.
I then opened up a new project and added my png file through the photos tab. from there I made it into a stencil.
Once I got to that point it was easy to re-size or change the colour, pattern whatever by adding "material" over the top. I made another page with a square in the middle and writing around the sides and on another page made a square to form the inside lining of the bottom of the box. and a circle with the same lettering to form the gift tag.
I then printed everything out, made the box and lined it, cur out the square from the lid and replaced with acetate, used a spellbinder to form the gift tag. I made the bootees and added braid around the bottom and used a tiny pearl ribbon buckle for the buckles on the shoes.
I some how get the feeling I will be using this trick again!
