Witch's Shoe with Oreo Striped Stocking, Halloween Craft

It's Halloween season, and that means time for some fun Halloween crafts. Make this fun, but fitting Halloween gift for a friend, teacher, etc.  

I found this 3D heel on the Silhouette Online Store.  Cricut has a similar one with their Princess Party cartridge.  
Making it is pretty self explanatory...except the heel, which I just played around with until it stood up...and you can't really tell by looking at it that I did it incorrectly. ;) So, sorry that I have no real tips there.  Now, to the making.

Quick note--  I tried fitting all of my pieces on one 8"x11" piece of paper, but for some reason that the paper would tear when I did this.  I think it was because I had the pieces too close together, and many pieces, that one piece of paper got stuck and tore, causing it to jam a little.  So...maybe try and space it out over two pages?  That's all I could attribute it to, as I have a new blade and the actual cut pieces were cut perfectly.

Once you have all your pieces cut, you should have two sides, one back, one toe-top, four heel pieces, and one bottom piece.  

The image actually comes with two bottom pieces to be cut out, but I wanted my inner bottom piece to be a different color paper, so I did them separately.  I made the shoe look more like a witch's shoe by adding a buckle and web-looking flower, with the purple one just for kicks. :)  My "buckle" was actually a frame from the Cricut cartridge, Formal Occasion (which, by the way, we have on sale right now for $14.95 instead of $29.99!  Go team!).  I ran the buckle through my ebosser with a dotted folder just to add a little more texture.  You can also see the "inside" bottom paper choice I used in the photo below.

After you've glued (try using a hot glue-gun to get the frame pieces to stay well) fill a bag with mint or orange cream Oreo's to look like a witch's striped stockings!  The end. Super cute!
