How do you help a TEEN feel better about some shoes she wrecked at Girls Camp???
After a few dips in a bleach bath-we managed to get her comfy sneakers back to a presentable color-but they literally had all the life bleached out of them!

So thanks to My Cricut Explore and a couple of fun shapes from the Paisley Cartridge

and of course Cricut's new line of NEON IRON ON VINYL.....we decided to have some fun!
(This vinyl will have to go color side down to actually cut-the shiny side is the release paper-but I wanted you to see the fabulous colors)

 This is what we had-isn't it lovely.  Now don't forget my tips for WEEDING VINYL......yep they are still the same-just go even slower because this material can rip and warp.

And  VOILA.......happy teenage GIRL!!  She is modeling them below.  Now why did we put the vinyl on the inside????  Well she has more ideas for the outside-stay tuned!!!
