This would be a fun and very affordable project to make with kids during the summer vacation or as a craft activity for a girls birthday party or sleepover especially when you can find great quality flip flops so cheapily this time of year for around $2-3 a pair in stores such as Old Navy or Walmart. You could also make them for fun party favors for family events and birthdays this summer…how unique would that be?  Your guests would love them…

So just how do you embellish your own flip flops?  Easily and as follows…simply take a pair of Flip Flops, purchase some foam sheets from any craft or big box store, get out your Big Shot and a Bigz Die, Brads or Buttons, Glue Dots and a Hot Glue Gun…

Run your foam through the Big Shot using the Bigz Die of your choice – I used Flower Daisies #2 – the Island Floral Bigz Die would work beautifully too and you can see an example I made using that Die at the end of this tutorial.

Assemble your flowers using Glue Dots and add a brad or button of your choice to the center – then use a hot glue gun to adhere this to your flip flop and repeat…and there you have some very cute flip flops that are very unique and individual.

Below are flip flops that I embellished using the Island Floral Bigz Die…
