Make sure your shoes are clear of dirt and dust

Cut the holographic tape into different sized triangles

Artfully stick them to the shoe with a small space in between each triangle

When you've covered the entire shoe, apply two coats of Minwax Polycrylic and let dry

Add sparkly crystals around the shoe opening with E-6000

Step 4: Now the Butterfly Clips

Cut 4 small circles the size of a quarter from the faux suede (you could use felt or thick fabric)

Glue two circles to each side of the flat part of the clip on earring findings

Slightly bend the butterfly upward so it's not flat

With more E-6000, glue the other metal part of the clip on to the back of the butterfly

Let dry and clip on the front of the shoes

I have not applied the polycrylic or the butterflies yet, but these are going to be perfect!

I will say I applied and removed the tape three times before I was comfortable with how to apply them properly.

I recommend working your way around the foot opening first and then filling in the rest. Also, do not wrap over rounded areas, use smaller peices and try to leave your openings in these areas.

Do not wrap over at the foot opening, cut off your tape just before the top of the shoe.

Using the tape from Mark's link you will have more than enough. So if you feel something isn't just right, pull it off and try another peice.

I used silver patent leather shoes because I thought the shiny silver in between peices of tape would look better, also, I don't need to tape the heels because it looks great with the silver patent.

I tried several different types of application. Marks way is the best. I hope I was of some help.
