Flip Flop Fun Series - Quick Lace Embellishment

I'm a big fan of lace and it seems to be popping up everywhere on clothing and accessories.  My new lace flip flops will be a perfect feminine touch to a plain outfit!  I used one pair of shoes to make myself summer flip flops that can easily be transformed into many different looks.
Supplies:
-flip flops
-lace
-Martha Stewart craft punch (any punch would work but this is my favorite!)
-hot glue gun
-brads for embellishing

I started by using my craft punch to put a small hole at the top of the flip flop straps.  This needs to be off centered in order to punch completely through the strap. 

Then I cut enough lace to completely cover each strap.  
I used hot glue to attach the lace to the strap.
Next I trimmed the edge of the lace to fit the strap. 
Repeat on the other shoe and now you have a pretty pair of flip flops!
Remember that you have the hole punched on the straps in case you are in the mood for something fun added to your shoes!


This entire project was done with supplies I already had at home aside from the flip flops and took less than 15 minutes to complete.

Hi Heather, good friends don't flip flop around; they share their crafti-ness, so thank you. I'll give it a go. Love to see what young ladies are doing so I can stay young at heart too. Blessings Terri -- www.morningdewdrops.typepad.com
