I am currently on the quest for the PERFECT leopard print flats. This quest is taking a while, mind you, because I'm notoriously picky; apparently just as much with shoes as I am with food. I hate bananas, but some of you knew that already.
While I am particular, I'm also impatient. To give me a quick touch of leopard on my toes, I whipped up some little clip-on bows to add some feline ferocity to my basic black pumps and flats.
Soundtrack to this crafting session? Leopard-skin Pill-box Hat, of course!

Tools and materials:
Approximately 12 inches of leopard print trim (mine's from M&J Trimming, but it's unfortunately not on their website. Try their ribbon instead.)
Glue (or needle and thread)
Clip-earring backs (not pictured)
Cut trim or ribbon into two approximately 6 inch pieces.
Glue down the middle on the wrong side. Fold over each end of the trim, and add more glue if needed.
Wrap a piece of black ribbon around the middle of the bow, gluing ends on the back of the bow. Secure with a clip and let dry overnight. You could also opt to sew the trim and ribbon together instead of gluing.
Glue clip-on earring backs to the back of both ribbons. Let dry, and then clip onto your shoes.
Purrfect. (Sorry. I had to say it.)
