DIY | HEART FLATS

10.28.2013
As I continue to define and refine what my style is, I realized that can never say no to a cute pair of flats. I loved the quirky and fun heart detail from Charlotte Olympia Cosmic Collection when I first saw them, and wanted to create an easy to follow tutorial to make your own pair at home. I decided to utilize the pointed tip of the shoe to create the bottom of the heart. Full tutorial after the break...
Materials:
- pointed flats (similar here and here)
- metallic spray paint
- 2 sheets of sticker paper
- tracing paper
- pen
- scissors
- tape

Steps: 
1. Take a sheet of tracing paper and wrap it around the from tip of the shoe. Tape in place. Then, draw a heart shape. Repeat and mirror for the other shoe.
2. Untape the tracing paper. Cut out the heart shape. Use the cut out as a guide, and trace this shape onto the sticker paper. Then, cut out. Repeat for the other shoe.
3. After cutting out the heart shape, stick onto the tip of shoe (as photoed). Make sure it is thoroughly stuck on. Repeat for other shoe.
4. Spray paint the heart in a well ventilated area.
5. Let fully dry, then remove the sticker paper.
