Embellished Flip Flops #summerofjoann

Embellished Flip Flops ~ I’m participating in the Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores­ “Cape Discovery” summer crafting challenge. To participate in the challenge, I was to pick a craft project in their Cape Discovery Spring Craft Catalog and reproduce it. I visited the catalog online with my daughters and had them pick which craft project they wanted to make. They both picked the Twinkle Toes aka Embellished Flip Flops project.

Flip Flops

I headed to the Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores to pick up the supplies for the project. They had a bin full of flip flops to choose from. I picked up a pair of blue ones for me and a pair of pink ones for Gabrielle. They didn’t have a size small enough for Emanuelle, so I figured I could use a pair of flip flops that she already owns. I then found a display full of flip flop embellishments. I was on strict orders from Gabrielle to pick up jewels! Luckily they had a bunch and even had her favorite.. skulls!


Embellished Flip Flops

– Flip Flops
– Feather Clips
– Flower Clips
– Flip Flop Embellishments (Skulls)
– Rhinestones
– Flip Flop Glue

Step 1: Clip the feather or flower clips onto the flip flops.

Step 2: Use the flip flop glue to glue embellishments onto the clips. Gabrielle chose to put a skull on each of the feather clips. Step 3: Glue rhinestones onto the straps of the sandals. (It takes 24 hours for the glue to set completely, I tried using hot glue and the embellishments just fall off.)

And voilà! You are done!

I let Emanuelle stick the embellishments onto her flip flops. When she was done figuring out her pattern, I removed them and used the craft glue to secure them on. Flip-Flop-Fashion

    Oh my goodness, these are adorable. I definitely have to head over to Jo-Ann’s to pick some stuff up for my granddaughter. She will love making her some bling-ed up flip-flops.

    Your girls look the same age as mine. I know they will love this. The other day I had them adding beads to safety pins. I guess I’m still stuck in the 80’s! We’ll definitely give this a try. :) I saw this post on the ‘Things I’ve Done Thurs. link party. I posted on there too. I’d love for you to come see my week old blog!
