771  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Beaded Flip Flops Tutorial with Pics. on: June 06, 2004 08:37:39 AM
When I go to the beach, which is often since I live near the shore, I see many people wearing flip flops. I often see people wearing the same pair... and I've sometimes seen people with the same ones as me! Since I can't stand looking like other people, I found an easy way to make custom flip flops. Here's my tutorial.



First, gather the following materials: hot glue gun with glue, pair of flip flops, mardi gras beads (or other string of beads, pearls, etc.) and scissors.

To begin, cut the mardi gras beads (or pearls. I'm going to say mardi gras beads since that's what I used.) along one string, so the beads are no longer a necklace, but rather a straight line of beads.

Next, use the string to measure how long the strand needs to be in order to cover the thong part of the shoe.

Then, cut the beads to the measured legnth and glue in place.

Repeat on other shoe.

Here's me modeling them for you.

you don't need it if you're only selling on Ebay. Talk to a lawyer about your questions.

You have to try this for the summer! This bug repellent works because the ingredients are natural bug repellers. Plus, they don't smell bad like chemical repellers do!

Materials ( To make enough for one person for one time)
 Smiley 1/2 oz. of unscented body lotion
 Smiley 3 drops of eucalyptus oil
 Smiley 3 drops of peppermint oil
 Smiley 3 drops of citronella oil
           Huh You can find these items at a healthfood store. They only cost a few dollars, about $4-$9 would be my guess.
           Huh Double this like a recipie to make more.

Step By Step
1. Mix the body lotion and the drops in a bowl.
2. Lather it on your body before you go outside.

Hints, Tips, and Suggestions
 Grin You can give this to friends and family as gifts.
 Grin Recycled spray bottles (or new ones from the dollar store) make great containters for this mixture.

This is more about decorating the thing rather than covering the fuse box.

I have a mirror that I decorated for a friend. I wrote/printed/cut from magazines phrases like, "You look great!" "Have fun at the movies!" "Your smile is bright!" "No, you don't have anything stuck in your teeth." etc. She really liked it, and said it gave her a self esteem boost when she woke up each day.

Oh! I was a Daisy, Brownie, Junior, and now I'm a Cadette. I have TONS of patches. I like that belt idea...

You can always take the jewlery apart (cut the beads off, detatch pinbacks, etc) and make new pieces.

No, I only've made these as gifts so far... I'm working on an 80s shirt with Rocky and Bullwinkle on it... maybe I'll take step-by-step pictures if I get a chance.

I've been thinking about making one of these for a while now, but I have my concerns. Is this safe to eat out of? I mean, if I were to put chips in them and serve them at a party, would anyone get sick and thtow up in my bathroom? Do they leave any kind of residue on food placed in it? I mean, if it does, I can always buy some sort of musical-note tissue paper and line it with that.
Also, how would you clean this? By hand, I guess... it might not be able to last through the dishwasher.
Anyway, if anyone knows the answers, please reply! Thanks!

I really like this idea! Maybe making these with pictures of famous people would be cool... there are lots of sites with those pictures. I like http://www.mugshots.net. That'd be a funny gift. "Here, happy birthday. I hope you like the cuff I made you. It's your favourite rapper's mug shot." Hahaha.
