Baby Bootie Cup Ingredients (to make one baby bootie)

You will need:

Take an 8oz. Styrofoam cup and cut about an inch off of the top. (I like to cut 2 slits before I start to help ease the scissors into cutting).

cut top of styrofoam cup

Cut a slit starting at the top of the cup and cut downward until you are about an inch from the bottom of the cup. Make a matching slit with a space of an inch to an inch and a half in-between.

This will become the tongue of your shoe. Push the tongue back and bring the sides in to create flaps over the tongue.

Some Bootie Cup Variations:

You can use decorative scissors to cut the top of the bootie. It adds a nice touch to it.

Cut one hole on each side of the shoe instead of two.

Use paper cups instead of Styrofoam. They have a lot of great designs on the cups that can really make cute baby booties.

Add some speed to your crafting! Instead of punching holes, place a dot of hot glue to the flaps to hold it together. Then hot glue a bow to it. It is both quick and beautiful!
