I made some for my dd also...I bought the shoes resale for $3 put some cute ribbon for the shoelaces and used the gem tac type glue for the stones and did them on the toe of the shoe...talk about pain in the rear..I had to use tweezers for some of them. She outgrewn them in a month but at least i didn't pay $75 for them. I've seen these shoes on ebay from $50 to $100. That's just alot of money but it is alot of work to make them. If you can find used shoes at a resale shop it's totally worth it though..I probably had less than $10 in the shoes and now my neice gets to wear them too since dd outgrew them.
