For the shoe box i used a template of a hot chocolate gift set i got for christmas because it was the perfect size of what i wanted to do. The front had a clear sheet so you could see into it. I covered the whole box with a fabric that suited my colour scheme and then replaced the front cover from clear to a glittery patterned clear sheet. For my design i wanted to have the shoes standing so i also created a shelf in the box, reinforced with cardboard.
I wanted a clear bag to put the shoe box in so you could see what was in the bag. People like to show off new purchases.. why not do it while carrying it home? i added one of the “mrs robinson” labels to the handle of the bag.
