Summer means cute pedicures and even cuter footwear to show them off. What is does not have to mean is sandals that cost a fortune. At about $2 a pair you can make a different pair for every day of the week and still not use up a $20 bill!
Make them bright and tropical like above or go sweet and understated like these....
These are so fast and easy to make that it would be a super fun party for little girls and big girls alike! I think I might just do this for my next Mother's Night Out!
So here we go....
1) You will need paper flowers from the scrap booking section of your local craft place. I purchased an assorted container and used my 40% off coupon. I have made 3 pairs so far and I could make at least 7-10 more pairs based on what I have left.
2) Quick dry glue. Of course you could use hot glue but .. I don't know.. sometimes I just don't feel the "hot-glue love".. This glue was great and was dry to the touch in about 30 minutes. It was a bit stinky but worked great!
3) Flips- I got mine at the craft store - $1 a pair! Nobody is going to write home about the quality of these but I plan on pitching them at the end of Summer so $1 is the right price.
Pick your flower colors and divide them up sort of evenly for each flip. I did not go nuts with this.. since I am sort of that way.. but get as twisted up or as loose as you want... it is up to you :)
Start with the center flower and build your way out using just a bit of glue on the back of each. You could also add a small bead to the center of each flower when you are done.. or maybe a button. Let them dry for at least 30 minutes but over night is best. Since the flowers are paper I plan on spraying them with a bit of clear coat in hopes of getting a bit of extra wear out of them... but otherwise that is it!
See... easy! Now.... want some of my extra paper flowers?... I have two packages but you are going to have to get your own flips.... if so leave your name and a way to contact you should you be the lucky winner and I will draw names on Sunday!
