This post was created in partnership with HP.
I am so excited to finally share my second Sprout by HP project with you! If you missed the first one, it’s here. For this post, I decided to use the Sprout in a slightly different way for this project. Basically I used the Sprout to help me visualize a DIY that I’ve always wanted to do. There’s a certain brand of expensive shoes that always has embellished slip-ons and instead of paying an arm and a leg, I figured I should try a DIY myself! And since I do call myself a fashion blogger, this type of thing is right up my alley! For the shoe, I wanted to spruce up a pair of Blu Kicks slip-ons that I received a few months ago. I love these gorgeous gold babies because they are SO comfortable, breathable and island inspired. Breathable is probably the key word there as I’ve tried many slip-ons that definitely are not breathable and that makes for a not good situation when you take them off. I decided I wanted to use some clear crystals to embellish this gold pair.
First, all that I needed was a pair of shoes, super glue (craft glue could work too but I couldn’t find any in our house, and a variety of gems (I found these at Jo-Ann). What I did was I scanned the shoes onto my Sprout Workspace and then the sheets of gems. I tried to punch out the gems but was finding that a bit difficult to do. So instead I opted to scan each size of individual gem.
