Fancy flops - Tried it out Thursday

I took some inspiration from A Couple of Craft Addicts and made my own ruffled flip flops.

I used about 70 inches of ribbon for both shoes. I also made a flower out of a shorter piece of ruffled ribbon for each shoe and topped the flower with a vintage clip on earring (clip removed).

I'm pretty pleased with these.

I also took some inspiration from these shoes at Famous Footwear:

Seriously, why pay $19.99 when for $1.29- $2.79 (depending when you buy your flip flops) you can have these?

I made my flowers out of felt, following this tutorial. I love how these turned out. I may do more like this. I'm picturing these in white and yellow.  What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by. I'll be linking up here:


  1. These are gorgeous! I wear so much black and white so of course I am loving the black ones but they are all so cute!
