  • Level:beginner
  • Time:1/2 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Trace your foot or a pair of flip-flips on cardboard to figure out what size shoe you'll need to make.
  • 2
    Use your scissors to cut out your design.
  • 3
    Cover the cardboard in Winking White. To insure clean lines, start at the top and place the tape horizontally, folding over the excess tape on the bottom.
  • 4
    For the straps, cut a 14 inch long piece of Electric Blue and fold it lengthwise sticky side to sticky side.
  • 5
    Cut a hole in the top of your flip-flop where your big toe would be.
  • 6
    Thread the piece from step 4 through the hold and tape the middle of the strap to the bottom of the flip-flop.
  • 7
    Place the flip-flop on your foot to measure the length of the loops. Tape the Electric Blue straps ends to the bottom of the shoe.
  • 8
    Cover the entire bottom of the flip-flop with a layer of Electric Blue and cut the edges to create a clean edge.
  • 9
    Repeat steps 1 through 9 to make a matching pair. Do stripe in each color desired (if you want a rainbow as seen in the photo, use a strip of Cha Cha Cherry, Blaze Orange, Sunburst Yellow, Island Lime, Deep Blue Ocean and Purple Duchess on each flip-flop).
