Pamper Your Toes



It’s time to pamper our toes for wearing sandals, going barefoot, or just for the pure bliss of it. Marmalade Kiss has an easy tutorial for making toe separators. They’re so cute that I had to make some, too.



You don’t need much fabric. I used bits of another one of my Japanese-print fabrics and made quite a number of these little cuties. They make great gifts.



I figured cardstock printed with a foot and then cut out would be a fun way to present little gifts. My idea was to wind the separators around each toe, much as we would in using them for a pedicure, but they kept falling off. In the end, I merely tied them around the card.

You always find the best ideas June. Love how you have done the foot card to got with them. They look like fun..... Wish I had nice toes like you....

Oh thanks for reminding me! :-) Lovely idea and a great way to present the tow separators! Most people I know get pedicures but I'm going to try to do my own from now on to save loads of money. Ok, maybe I could get a manicure once a year... once we have employment again!

I would like to recommend a toe seperator called Snoosy. It is the same idea as your toe seperator.
It pampers my toes time after time.
I would love to hear if you tried this wonderful product.
