Summer Flip Flops.

It's  a new challenge over at my

My first thought was Washi Tape Flip Flops
as one does!
First  I needed to gather some stash together and 
this is just some of what I eventually used.

I drew a rough shape out  on paper until  I was happy 
that it resembled a flip flop base and then cut 
a left /right out from corrugated card
to give the appearance of a sole.
I stuck two strips of washi tape back to back on a sheet of paper
for the straps.
I embossed a sheet of white card with 
SU's Decorative dots folder to represent the base and
coloured with distressed ink to make them look worn.

I puched holes in the bases and threaded the 
washi  tape straps through and then 
decorated with embellishments in  my stash.
Butterflies were cut from a satin strip.

I also cut out  more white card to make the
bottoms and used distress ink to age.
