Make Your Own Lip Print Sneakers with Cricut

Consumer goodsHere’s some news you already knew – I love a bold lip. My go to lip color is Pink Pigeon by M.A.C., but truth be told, if it’s hot pink or bright red, I’m interested. Considering you can only wear one lip color at a time…lest you look like a complete freak show…I figured I should get creative with my other accessories. In this case, shoes.

With valentine’s day around the corner, a pair of lip print sneakers is a must. And if you’re anything like me, you’ll have no problem rocking these beauties all year long. With the help of my Cricut Explore Air (you could also use your Cricut Maker), making these sneakers is easy peasy.
