Guest Blog Post: Flip Flop fun!

Hi from sunny Southern California! It's Design Team member Shemaine bloggin a fast and fabulous Flip Flop tutorial! Summer's here and it's time to put your socks away here in California and hit the beach wearin...yep you guessed it, flip flops! Now what I love about flips as I call em, is that they are cheap! I picked these ones up at Michaels for my sweet little girl for $2. In my book that's a bargain.


Now after I got them home I wanted to do something to jazz them up so I got out my two favorite tools, the i-Top and the i-Rock and got to work. Creating this project took me 20 mins start to finish. I absolutely love the little crab in the Splash Dance line and created two brads using the 22mm size brad daddies. Next I layered some of cutie flowers from the Lucy Bird collection with hot glue and then topped them off with my brad. I then used the hot glue to attach them to the center of the flips.



Once the glue dries, get out your i-rock and bling it up baby! I used 4 of the rhinestones from the Hot Rocks Compact in crystal for each side of the flips. You will love this tool, I mean you can bling just about anything!



So now you're done...here's the finished project. Very easy to create and super inexpesive!



And of course I had to show them on these little feet...please excuse the boo boo...she dropped a toy on her big toe. Super cute right?



I'd love for you to try to create some fun flips for your little one or yourself! If you do be sure and leave us a link so we can stop by your blog and take a peek!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a fantastic weekend!
