Introduction: TAPE SHOE FOR DECOR
This is a project to do if you have lots of extra time.
So,if you want to do something creative in your time this is the perfect project for you.
It's a shoe/heel made compelety made of tape.
It is a very cheap project.
I used just half of the tape in the picture.
This is a very time consuming project so I would recommend that you sit in a comfortable place and then......let's get started!!!!!!
A shoe of the shape you want your tape shoe to be (make sure the shoe has a shiny coating or the tape will stick to it)
Tape (thick or thin will work but preferably thick .It will make your work easier)
Step 1: MAKING THE UPPER PART OF THE SHOE
The key to this project is to work in small parts.
So start with a small piece of tape and stick it on the start of the upper part of the shoe.
Put the next piece of tape beside the first one, overlapping it.
Continue like this until you have covered a small piece.
Stick two more layers on it.
Then remove it from the shoe.
Touch the sticky side of the tape several times with your fingers so that the glue becomes less sticky.
Then stick it again to the shoe and add two more layers.
Remove it and put it aside.
Repeat the process for the part above it.
Stick the first part and then the second above it.
They should stick together but you can use some tape to secure it.
Using the same process make the whole upper part of the shoe.
Cover the sticky side with one more layer of tape
Step 2: MAKING THE SOLE OF THE SHOE
Using the method given in step one make the sole in three parts- the foot part, the middle part and the heel part.
Use the same method but after removing it after applying three layers add six to seven more layers so that it gets to the total of nine to ten layers.
Then stick the sole together.
Step 3: MAKING THE HEEL OF THE SHOE
Use the same method as in step one to make the heel but this time use a total of twelve layers.
Don't stick the bottom part of the heel.
Step 4: ASSEMBLING THE SHOE
TIP-STICK THE TAPE AROUND THE THING YOU WANT TO STICK SO THAT THE TAPE IS HALF STUCK TO THE THING AND THE OTHER HALF IS OUT. CUT SLITS IN THE TAPE SO THAT THERE ARE FLAPS OF TAPE. STICK USING THOSE FLAPS FOR A NEATER AND EASIER FINISH.
First stick the heel to the sole.
Then stick the heel's bottom part to the heel.
Finally stick the shoe's top part to the sole.
Your Tape Shoe Is Ready!!!!!!!
