How to make a 3D paper shoe, Free template
- 1 Video tutorial to make paper 3D high heel shoe:
- 2 Step by step instruction to make 3D paper shoe:
- 2.0.1 Print out the template on your favorite sturdy paper. It could be watercolor paper, color cardstock, or glitter cardstock or even printer paper.
- 2.0.2 I used the glue stick for watercolor paper and printer paper and use UHU glue for glitter cardstock.
- 2.0.3 Cut out the template along the solid lines and score the dotted lines.
- 2.0.4 Pay attention to the mountain fold (dot-dash) lines and valley fold (dash) lines. Use a ruler to help with folding.
- 2.0.5 Note the tabs and numbers inside the shoe. And glue the same number tabs to one another using quick dry glue for the fastest result.
- 2.0.6 The second page of the template is the shoe lining. Choose a paper color for the liner that complements the shoe surface for a gorgeous look. As an alternative, use spray paint or acrylic paint/nail polish to color the entire shoe or just the liner.
- 2.0.7 You could decorate the shoe with tiny paper flowers. I use x actor knife to cut some leaves and a tiny rose, like what I have shared in the mini rose tutorial.

The above paper high heel shoe was just made from printer paper and then covered by a gold spray paint.
I found that the tabs were hidden successfully that you don’t need to make liner inside.
And the above shoe was made from watercolor paper 180gsm. For the printer paper and watercolor paper shoe, I used white glue.
Because white glue melts in water, you could easily get the white glue in the syringe.
Just put the needle of the syringe in a cup of water whenever it gets dried.

Hello, in one of the shoe you have some kind of rolls, is it paper? Thank you for sharing your template.
yes, Lucie. It’s rolled paper flowers. Thank you.
Do you have this in a Cricut ready format?
Sorry, I couldn’t figure out how to group all the fold lines in DS yet. I wish I could.
Do you not have the high heel one as a SVG file?
Sorry, I don’t know how to group all the score lines together. Currently, they are so many of separated lines that you can’t manually set it.
I was just wondering if you make paper shoes for parties if someone paid you.
Sorry, I don’t sell the finished products
Hi, thank you for this craft project. I love all things high heels and use them in my artwork most of the time. It is trying but I am still working on the heels. I have A.D.D. sometimes and rush my projects so this is a good idea to work on. Thank you again.
I’m glad that you like it. Thanks Tim.

Dear Dem, you can find the template link in #7 of the material list. Please, you should not be worried about such little things. Please be noticed that you will be very patient and watch my instruction carefully, as I tried to instruct very detailed. It’s not difficult, but it needs calm and patience. All the best.
I wanted to download the pattern

can I ask for a valid link or an email file
Hi Dorota, please kindly find the template link (little pink link) at the end of the material list of each post. You must have clicked on the ads link, which I have stated clearly that a sponsored links. Sorry for any inconvenience.
I have downloaded the High Heel shoe template but am only able to print out page 1
Page 2 although shows up on my to print page just comes out blank
Oh how come, Christine. I’ve just tried to print both page and there’s no error with the template. I could not send you the seperate page 2, because I am affraid that the liner size might be different with the main shoe size, which happened to me in making these 3 different shoes with 3 different sizes when I exported the file again and again. I hope that you could find out the error.
