Daisy Flip Flops





My girls can't wait to break out the Flip Flops on the first day the sun shines in Spring. We pulled out the ones left from last summer and of course they are all too little, s0 I went to Walmart yesterday but they didn't have anything but plain ones out yet. I bought several colors and brought them home and spiced them up a bit. I used the Daisy #2 die for this pair, the girls loved them! I just bought a variety pack of craft foam but you could use felt or fabric. Wouldn't these look cute done in all white for the flower girls in a summer wedding!


And of course, I couldn't just stop at one pair! The shoes only cost $3.00 but with the embellishment they look much more expensive.



Wow! I just posted this less than 30 minutes ago and have already had a request, THANK YOU Susan! Yes, I would be glad to make the Daisy embellishment and mail them to you. For those who don't have a Big Shot or don't have this die, just tell me the colors you want, I will cut them out for you, stack and glue them together. When you get them in the mail all you have to do is hot glue them to your flip flops! The price will be $4.00 for 2 embellishments which will include shipping.

Oh my goodness! These are darling! You are brilliant! TFS! I'm thinking these would be so much fun for a little girls birthday party!

Oh how cute and so much easier than a previous fundraiser we did using yarn and crocheting the tops. How many layers of Daisies did you use? I already have this die so am anxious to try this. Thanks for sharing!

For the daisies, I used 3 of the largest, e of the middle size, and 1 of the smallest. I also found that if you wrap ribbon around the part of the flip-flop where the daisy is going to be attached you get a better bond with the glue rather than just to the rubber. For some of the thinner ones a brad through the bottom daisy and the strap would work also.

That would be 2 of middle sized ones. (proofread, lol)!

These are absolutely adorable. I just finished making 3 pair, so easy and the Big Shot cuts the foam like butter! I have company coming tomorrow and I have a pair of the flip flops on each of the guests beds. Won't they be surprised.
Thank you so much for your wonderful idea.

So you hot glue the flower to the strap? I want to make these with 9 kids at our Cousin Camp this summer, and I want to make sure they stay on. :) Thanks!

So you hot glue the flowers to the strap? I'm planning to make these with my 9 nieces and nephews this summer at our Cousin Camp, and I want to make sure they're not going to fall off in an hour. :) Thanks!

Hi Sandy! Fabulous idea and the flowers turn out SUPER CUTE - but can't get them to stick and stay stuck to the flip flops. Any secret? I've tried Hot Glue Gun - Glue Dots and nothing is holding them on. Would like to hear if your flowers are falling off and if not - what did you use. Thanks!

Very cute! Found you googling for flips! Getting ready to do a class on these and was looking for inspiration. Can you tell me, after you cut the flower layers, what did you use for the center piece and how did you hold it all together?

THANKS!!!
