Flip Flop Fun Series - Rhinestone Straps

I love the way rhinestones look on the toes of Converse shoes for little girls!  Last winter I had so much fun making rhinestone shoes for my daughter and am a little disappointed the weather is too warm for her to wear them everyday!  I came up with the perfect solution - rhinestone flip flops!  I've seen these everywhere lately and knew I could make my own with supplies I already had at home.
Supplies:
flip flops
Gem-Tac glue (GREAT for rhinestones on shoes!!)
Rhinestones (any size would work)
Optional: The Silhouette Pick Me Up (a super fantastic tool to make applying rhinestones a million times easier!)


I wasn't sure if I would have enough rhinestones to completely cover both straps so I only applied enough glue for a few rhinestones at a time.  I used a paintbrush to brush the glue directly onto the flip flop strap.  Then I used my Pick Me Up tool to stick the rhinestones directly to the glue.

I made sure to work on both shoes together so they would match in the case that I ran out of rhinestones.  You certainly don't have to cover the entire straps.  I contemplated stopping before I was finished because the shoes looked so cute!

I'm sure I will be making more of these for my daughter and probably a pair for myself too!
