Ribbon Flip Flops

Summer time is surely a lot of fun.  Although it is mostly play time for the kids, you can help them make their time productive.  For girls, you can teach them to make their own accessories.  It will bring out the creative side and designing ribbon flip flops for girly things.

Designing ribbon flip flops for girly things everywhere is common, especially during the summers.  It would be fun if girls can make their own personalized flip flops.  But, be sure to assist the younger kids while doing this.  Begin by cutting the straps of the flip flops.  Then, put rubber cement on the foot beds of the flip flops.  It would be advisable to do this outdoor to avoid breathing the strong smell of the materials.  Then, press the sticky side to the bottom of the flip flops to be designed.  It will create a colourful effect on the platform.  Allow this to dry.  You can now decorate the foot bed in different designs you want.  Flowers, butterflies, and stars can be a beautiful design for this.  You can use craft paint and stencils for doing this.  Then, by using glue, you can cover the strap of the flip flops with ribbons or other fabrics of your choice.  Use scissors for excess fabrics.  If you want, you can add decorations above the flip flop thong.  Silk flowers are the most common design placed on top of flip flops.  Make sure to completely dry the flip flops before wearing them.  You can design another if you want.  Explore and be creative while designing flip flops for girly things.

Since I have very short hair I’d have to make bows for other people. I do like flip flops so this would be fun for me.
