How to make it

Step 1: Print your floral pattern on the iron transfer paper.

Step 2: Cut the paper in small pieces. You can trace pieces to fit the shoe, or what I found to be easiest was to cut around small sections of flowers and iron little pieces at a time.

Step 3: Iron the floral all over the shoes (following the instructions for your paper). The iron transfer paper instructions will tell you to put a pillowcase or something thin over the paper while you iron, but that just made it hard to see where I was working. So I didn't use the pillow case, but was careful to not leave the iron on any spot for too long. After peeling the backing off, I tapped the tip of the iron on any areas that looked peely, and washed my iron afterward.

Step 4: Replace the laces (if you want) with something more fun.
