To start making this you will need a 1 litre milk or juice tetra carton.

Cut the tetra carton in half lengthwise using scissors or a utility knife. Then make four cuts as shown in this picture. This way you will have divided the tetra carton into three parts: one for the tip shoe (the shortest), one for the instep (the largest) and the last for the heel (the in size in-between)

Use masking tape to stick the three parts together to shape it like a shoe. It's much easier to use masking tape as you can tear it with your fingers. It is very important that the shape of the shoe is well secured so use enough tape. It is very important that the toe and heel of the shoe are completely parallel to each other and the instep so it holds itself perfectly upright. Set the angle of shoe according to the heel you want (I'm going to make high heels)

Now make the heel of the shoe. To do this, take a piece of cardboard and roll it like a cone. If you want a thicker heel don't roll it so tight. Secure it with a piece of tape so the cone does not move.

Make four cuts on the top of the heel with scissors (see the picture). Once you have made the cuts, open the 4 flaps to stick the heel on to shoe.

Stick the heel to the shoe with tape. Use enough tape to fasten it securely and make sure that it fits perfectly to the shoe.

Use more tape around the heel to secure it.

You've finished your shoe. Now take a sheet a paper and put your shoe on top of it. Draw the shoe's outline on to the paper with a pencil.

In this case, I wanted to make a round toe shoe. To do this, I took a piece of newspaper and made a ball.

Mix glue and water in a bowl. Grab a piece of brown tissue paper and wet it thoroughly with the glue and water mixture using your fingers.

This piece of tissue paper will be used to stick the newspaper ball on the tip of the shoe. Place the ball on the tip and, on top of that, put the gluey tissue paper and stick it to the shoe. After this, take some more brown tissue paper and begin to cover the entire shoe (inside and out, including the heel).

Now that the shoe is lined with tissue paper and glue you just need to colour it!

I have chosen red. To colour it, just take some more tissue paper in the colour you want and begin to wrap it around the show as you did with the brown paper. Remember to thoroughly wet each strip of paper with the glue and water mixture so that it sticks well. Do you like how it looks?

To add some more colour and to decorate the shoe a bit you can add some decorations. Here you can see that I have added some detail to the toes with orange and red tissue paper. And that's it - you've finished! Now you just need to leave it for a few days to dry out properly. And that's it you've made a beautiful shoe that can decorate any part of your house!
