These flip flops are very easy to make. Trace a flip flip onto a piece of poster board. Using this as your pattern, trace onto a decorative paper and glue onto the poster board base (I used a spray glue). Stack a couple of books on top to dry and keep it flat. I always place a sheet of waxed paper between the books and the glued object. Next, glue two pieces of decorative paper together (back-to-back) and cut out a v-shape - this is the thong part of the flip flop. After the base is dry, cut a slit on each side of the flip flop and insert ends of the v-shape. Glue or tape down ends on the bottom side. Next, use a brad to hold the thong and base of the shoe together. Voila! You're done. I used these as thank you gifts for teachers at the end of the school year. Inside, the card read, "Have A Cool Summer" and it was included with a gift certificate for ice cream. They all loved it!
