I have 2 pairs of flip flops that no longer fit me - does anyone have any ideas for crafty projects I could do to recycle them? They have soft, rubbery soles and one pair has a plastic thong that goes between your toes whilst the other has a fabric strap instead... (hope this makes sense!) I will try to post a picture of them soon!

i'm guessing they're still in good condition, or you'd throw them out.  
why don't you make some kind of beach-themed wall hanging (or desk organizer or other kind of display), and use a pair of flip-flops as mini bulletin boards?  the soles are perfect to stick push-pins into.

using an exacto knfie cut out simple shapes(like a star) and use as a stamp. just squirt some acrlyic/tempra paint on a pallette and rub your "stamp" in it and stamp away.
u could stamp-walls, book covers, wrapping paper, table top. use your imagination

you could also decopauge them with a theme-there is instruc. somewhere on this site. 2003 shoes is the title i think. good luck

You could drill a hole in the heel of one of the flip flops and string clock parts through.

Yeah what i would do is take the plastic part out, the v shaped part that goes in between your toes, so you just have the foam part.  And then cut some paper the same size cut some holes in the top thread some wire and you have a notebook.  I've seen one like it in a store but never one with an actual flip flop that would be so cool.

_I think ducktape_diva means that sophia could buy a clock's mechanism -I've seen clockworks kit at craft stores- & drill a hole in the flip flop & create a clock out of it.
