How To Make Paper Shoes – Step By Step Tutorial (DIY Craft For Kids)
Cut the paper in the given dimension of 15X15CM and take the first sheet and fold the ends of both sides and open.
Again make a diagonal fold with the ends meeting and give a clean fold. Once the paper is folded, make another side fold from both ends, so that the paper converts into a small square shape. This fold will be similar to a kite shape.
Turn the paper on the other side and make equal folds meeting the end at the middle, similar to the last step. You will now get a diamond shape fold on this side.
Open the sides and press the ends making a flat window on both sides.
