I just went out and bought very basic heels [I went with black patent heels that had a bit of a platform to them, which was a total personal preference]. Then spent a couple of hours cutting up the pages of a Harry Potter book. I choose book 2 merely because I loved the quotes scattered throughout its pages and it was the only HP book that I had a copy of and was falling apart. I'm not going to list every step I took, that's why the link is posted if you so wish to make your own-although I must warn you... it is a very very long and tedious process... expect to spend the afternoon working on this.
I plan on making more of this style in whatever book crosses my fancy. :)

|Make sure to place something down to protect|
your work surface. Cleaning up glue on the floor is not easy.
|The most tedious part is definitely wrapping|
around the heels and curving the sides
|But everything was definitely worth it!|
Amount of time: 1/2 day [I kept getting distracted by the Olympic trials]
Willingness to repeat: absolutely yes!!
I can't wait to wear them!
