Funky Flip – Flops – Great Craft for Parties

Standard

Need a great craft for birthday parties, slumber parties, end of the year parties or anything in between? How about making some funky flip – flops.  Girls of all ages love them … kids, tweens or teens!  They are easy and inexpensive to make.  The perfect summer craft and party favor rolled into one.

1.  Buy cheap solid color flip flops.  Buy cotton fabric (or use fabric scraps) in different shades and patterns that blend well together.  For each pair of flip flops you will need approximately 1/4 of a yard of combined material.  (We have also made these using old t-shirts).

2.  Cut strips of fabric approximately 1″ wide x 8″ long.  For younger kids cut the strips 5/8″ wide and 6″ long.  You’ll need about 35 strips per flip – flop … 70 for the pair.

3.  Place a fabric strip underneath the top part of the flipflop 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 flipflop.  Repeat until the entire top of the flip – flops are covered.

My daughter made these because her school colors are black and red.  Make yours with bright yellows, reds, aquas and greens – or any color that matches your theme.
