Our young women’s New Beginnings theme for 2013 is Stand in Holy Places: The Worth of Soles! We are using ideas from this post, having the girls model a pair of value-colored shoes while an emcee talks about the value the shoe represents.
Our invites are paper shoes, which need to be unlaced to read the details of the evening.
There is a trick to getting the shoes to fold just right – and that is to line up the top of the shoe before pressing down the fold. These are so fun, and I love how the different patterns make each shoe so unique. You can download the shoe pattern invitation here.

Thank you so much for all of your ideas, inspiration, and printables! It has been a huge help to us! We are making these shoe invites for our program and I am wondering if I could get it in a larger size. Maybe you could send it in as a jpg? Or just one shoe per page?
We are definitely using your invitation for our New Beginnings. We enlarged it a little on the copy machine and made our own words for the inside. We also are putting a little SL Temple cutout instead of the NB. But thank you, thank you so much for the idea and the template. It made my job so much easier. These invites are awesome. I plan to use your program cover also. You are so creative. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Love, it! The temple cutout is a fantastic idea.
I’ve just stumbled onto your website and am so excited by all the wonderful ideas and resources you’ve shared here! Wow! Thank you for being so generous with your gifts and talents.
I love this! It’s a wonderful idea! But I am having a hard time trying to change the text Acrobat won’t let me! Any suggestions?
Diana, sorry – the files are not editable pdf’s. You would have to write in additional info, or try adding text in a graphics program.
Love your ideas! Thank you. The link you provided to direct us to the site with ideas for the shoes didn’t work for me. Would you direct me to the website?
