Crushed velvet look and polka dot shoe clips

Hey everyone, I am here with some shoe bows to make my shoes look a little more glamorous and go with my new vintage dresses!

I started by gluing four crushed velvet looking lilac ribbons with a fold in the middle of the back, then two of the lilac polka dot. I used a peg to make sure they dried securely.

I then glued two of the back ribbons into a bow shape (not tying a knot keeps the bow from being too bulky!) and then added the polka dot in the centre with the other ribbons peeking out from behind it.  I repeated this with the other side.

I love these because you can wear them on any shoes, any time-and any where on the shoe! They don't damage your shoes so you can switch up basic shoes and make them really special and match your outfit!

I would like to enter these into the following challenges:
