Cut the ribbon 

The first step of this DIY is to measure and cut the red ribbon. Make sure that you have enough ribbon to overlap over each side of the top of the slide. Then use the piece of ribbon as a template to cut 3 more.

Next, place the ribbon on the top of the slide and fold a crease line into one corner.

Glue on the ribbon 

Apply the glue in this area and then place the folded ribbon over it, sticking it down. You’ll have to use both pieces of ribbon to cover the top of the slide. Let the glue dry before you continue sticking down the other side.

Once you have glued down the sides, put a single strip of glue on the inside and fold over the fabric to stick it down.

Next, use the pliers to remove the wire stem from the roses.

After cutting the stem all the way down, apply some hot glue to the back of the rose to hold the petals together. Repeat this for all the roses and let the glue dry.

When applying them to the shoe, you want to make sure you have your largest flower in the center of the shoe. Apply some glue to the center and stick the rose in place.

Once the flower is in the center you can reinforce it by adding some glue under the bottom petals. Then go ahead and add the other two flowers to the shoe. Try and fill up the shoe so that the ribbon shows as little as possible.
