How To Make Fun Flip Flops



Prepare before the party

Cut fabric into strips approximately 1" wide x 6" long.  You will need about 30 - 35 fabric strips per flip flop ... 70 for the pair. 

It is best to have these cut out before the party starts.

Ribbon can be used also with or without the fabric.  Cut ribbon into 6" lengths as well.

Putting The Flip Flop Craft Together

Place a fabric strip underneath the top part of the flip flop and bring the two edges together so they are even.

Tie the fabric onto the top of the flip flops and then knot it one time.

Tug the strips so the two pieces fall forward - toward the front of the flip flop. Alternate fabric colors.   Repeat until the entire top of the flip - flops are covered. 




Use fabric and ribbon to match school colors or your favorite outfit.
