I’ve been wanting to show you these flip flops for a while now! Three things have held me up: 1) It has been very cold and rainy here in Idaho and flip flops are not on my mind, 2) I knew I had to get a pedicure before I could show you my feet 🙂 3) I lost my E6000 glue! I bought these flip flops at Old Navy. They were $3.00, I’ve seen them on sale for as low as $1.00! Not bad eh? For the bows I used the ribbon mix Simply Sassy. You can learn how to make these bows using the TOTT Instructions. The TOTT instructions will help you make any type of bow you could imagine!
- 2 pieces of 3/8″ ribbon cut to 3 1/2″ ( the same color as your flip flop)
- Flip flops
- Lighter, candle, or a heat sealing tool of your choice.
- Scissors or rotary cutter
- 2 Single prong clips for your bows ( I actually used the mini single prong clips, they worked great and I like that I can’t feel or see the clip).
- Single prong clips or clothes pins to secure the ribbon to the flip flop.
I made this pair of flip flops to be interchangeable. The bow is attached to a single prong clip so you have the option of using it as a hair clip as well.
Hold your flip flop upside down and put a line of E6000 glue on the inside of the strap (the side of the strap that touches your foot) right by the part that goes in between your toes. Do this to both sides. Let the glue set for a couple minutes.
After the glue has set up a bit place a piece of 3/8″ ribbon (that has been cut to approximately 3 1/2″) onto one of your glue lines. (I did the right side first). You can secure the ribbon there with a single prong clip if you want to.
Pull the ribbon over the opposite side of the flip flop.
Take the ribbon all the way around the strap.
Clamp with a clothes pin or a single prong clip and let it set for 24 hours just to be safe. Repeat this process with your other flip flop, if you plan on wearing both of them. 🙂 After they are done setting, slide the clip of your bow through the ribbon that is glued to the flip flop and you are ready to hit the town! Or the pool! Oh I can’t wait to go to the pool! Go on ladies! Go get a pedicure and make yourself some sassy flip flops! If you’re not brave enough make them for your little girl!
