Aren't these cute? I got them on sale for $1.00. It was meant to be because my princesses flip flops broke and these are their replacement.
Not fit for a princess how they are, so let me show you how to jazz them up!
I used some glitter fun foam and the WITTLE WICKER die.
By cutting the fun foam with the WITTLE WICKER die, I get perfect 1/4 inch strips.
Next I took my red and black glitter fun foam and cut ladybugs
out from the LADYBUG FRAME die.
Here the pieces are ready to assemble.
Next I took a piece of fabric and ripped it in about 1/2" wide by 5" long strips.
Here is a nice pile of strips ready for the next step.
I took them one at at time and tied them on to the flip flop straps.
Finished with the tying.
Now with my white glitter foam 1/4" strips, I accidentally bought sticky back foam, so I stuck all my strips with a matching "buddy".
After I stuck all the sticky sides together, I cut the strips in half. They are about 1 inch long here. I covered a button with fun foam as a base. I them glued all the strips in a spiral fashion on the fun foam covered button.
I then cut a yellow flower out from the SWEET WILLIAM die.
I glued the SWEET WILLIAM to the top and trimmed and cut the white fun foam until I liked the shape of the flower.
I assembled and glued on the ladybugs and added some dimensional spots with a BLACK VIVA DECOR PEARL PEN.
Here are the flip flops all done.
Awww, look at those spots!
Next, I made a matching headband.
Using the same technique and design as the flip flops, I tied some fabric onto the headband.
Here is the finished headband.
Might as well make a bracelet to go along, right?
Look at those flip flops, I love how they turned out!
Here is the full ensemble.
Now we are just showing off!
You can tell she really LOVES her new things! The whole set cost between $5 and $8 to make. Not too bad, right?
I hope you have enjoyed my set fit for a princess, this has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana with Friday Fun!
