1. Choose pre-cut foam shapes
to decorate the straps of your flip flops. Foot shapes were used
on our sample ( or design your own ).
2. Glue a medium foot shape
to a large foot shape then a small foot shape to the medium foot
3. Place the shape on the top
of the strap then mark the strap about where the center of your
shapes will be. Punch two holes about 1/2" apart at this spot
on the strap. You may need an adult to help with this step.
4. Cut a piece of plastic lace
about 8". From the top, thread one end into one hole then up
through the next hole. Pull ends even. Thread one end of the lacing
onto the tapestry needle then use to pull the lacing up through
the center of the foam shapes. Push the shapes down onto the strap.
Remove the needle from this piece of lacing then thread onto the
end of the other piece. Pull this peace through the foam shapes
in the same manner.
5. Pull ends of lacing together
then make sure the foam shapes are pushed firmly against the strap,
tie once. Thread ends onto three pony beads. Secure with an overhand
knot then trim away excess lacing. Repeat for the other side.
6. Punch a hole at the center
of the strap. Fold an 8" piece of lacing in half. Thread both
ends into the hole. Pull the ends up, over the top edge of the strap
and down through the loop of the lace at the front. Pull tight.
Thread 3 pony beads onto each end of the lace. Secure with an overhand
knot against the last bead.
