How to make paper slippers
When you are traveling and find that you have forgotten to pack your bedroom slippers - here is a pair that you can fold in a jiffy from a piece of heavy paper. The pair are so easy to make that any one can do them! All sorts of fancy costume touches could be added like jewels, papers cut outs and glitter that you can really transform them into cute little slippers. A great rainy day afternoon fun for children too.

Thanks and have fun making the paper slippers
