I did this for my 12 year old who absolutely loves shoes. She chose the color! I intended to make the lid, but I was having a hard time, so I decided to do an "open" box with tissue paper coming out of it. You can't see in the picture but the side has a customized shoe box label. I covered the board in the matching color. Oh, and the shoe was freehand. Only after I made it did I see the template on here and next time I will definitely use it.
