Yesterday was a great time yesteday watching our grandson try to skate..His Grumpy went on the ice with him to teach him how to march on his skates... I will not be long and he will be doing it all on his own... That is Deklan not Grumpy ,he has a ways yet. LOL..Today we are off to Victoria again hotrod driving this weekend roads are to wet..All last week I found it so hard to put socks and runners on when I have been wearing flip flops for the last couple of week , so I have decided to do a craft to decorate flip flops.. I found that Flip flops have become the inexpensive summer sandal for every age group. They are easy to find in almost every color. They are usually simply made without much design to them. In fact, they beg for decorations. Here are some ideas to help you adorn each pair of your flip flops differently. Just remember the sky is the limit.

 3C'S CRAFT    

Rags to Ribbon

Ribbon and fabric are easy to use on flip flops. Cut or rip ½-inch strips of fabric 2 to 3 inches in length. Use the same or different patterns. Tie a fabric strip over the strap, starting at the left side, with a double knot. The tails of the knot should face upward. Keep knotting fabric strips until you reach the center thong. Skip over the thong and start again on the other side, finishing at the right side of the flip flop. .
A simple option, using patterned ribbon, is to cut two pieces the length of the straps and glue them on. Make a bow out of a separate piece of ribbon and glue it on top of the center thong. You can also wrap the ribbon around the straps, starting at one end and working your way to the other end, gluing as you go.
Add On
Use your hot glue gun to add items to your flip flops. Gluing silk flowers to the top of the thong is classic, but you can glue them along the straps as well. Try fancy buttons, rhinestones, sequins, glitter, feathers, trinkets or beads. When using beads, it's easier to string them first and then glue them to the straps.

Have to go and finish watching the Amazing Race
