Well, I have declared tutorial week on the blog here! I am taking over and posting projects that you, our fans, have asked how to make!
These rainboots (pictured below) were created by Design Team Diva Jen Matott for Nikki's CHA Winter booth this year. Jen loves to alter stuff and she came up with these on her own!! And remember these are made out of a 12 x 12 sheet of paper, so they LOOK big, but they really aren't!
Ok, here we go! You will need to print these templates to fit an 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of paper. There are two templates to do this with. When you print them, have them print with the option "FIT TO PAGE". Your printer should have this setting somewhere when your printer box comes up.

Use the templates and trace your shapes onto pattern paper and then cut out. You will then start assembling. Jen's tip was make sure to use STRONG glue. She also cut little strips of paper to use as the boot straps and attached them with brads.
Here are a few more pictures for visual reference while you are putting them together.
Now, if you make these boots out of Nikki Sivils papers, be sure to link it up on our Facebook wall, leave a comment here with a link to your blog where you have posted it, or email it to Julie Tucker-Wolek at email@example.com. We would love to see them!
