Paper baby shoes

I've been creating baby shoes to sew out in the hoop for my embroidery machine.  I love the way they all turn out identical if i need to make more than one pair.  I decided why not make them out of paper and cut them with my Cricut Machine.  I printed the pattern that i had designed for embroidery and took it into inkscape to manually trace.  It still needs a bit tweeking, but i like it.  I would recommend also cutting a sole that was made of cardstock, as i had only used patterned paper and it is very thin.  I still need to test it for thicker materials.  I think it would be great for a gift box topper or a baby shower favor.  I'll keep you posted when I will offer them for sale on my website.  Hope you like them.
