For many years I had been designing paper dresses for store displays but it wasn't until I was given a gift of old book binding papers that I thought about creating the shoes to go with them. I have been creating Paper Shoes for the past 5 years and my inspirations come from the paper that I find. An old music sheet turns into a long pointy toe slipper with roses and a piece of discarded wallpaper becomes a high heeled floral bouquet. Other materials I use include maps, journals, packaging material and gift wrap. The shoes are approximately 8 inches long and vary in height from flat to stiletto. Each shoe is an original design and one of a kind.
