    This would be perfect for a girls birthday party. My girls love sleepovers, but I always had to come up with things to do. This idea would be perfect. I am going to get my Diana, age 11, a couple of pairs of flip flops and make these cute flip flops this week or next. She will love it and it will give her something to do.

    I love flip flops…you will hardly find me in anything else once the weather warms up. These are cute and would be good to use on any of your flip flops that don’t look so great on the top.

    Pinning it!
    Thanks for sharing!
