Inspiration: Staying on the theme of shoes to cover the four seasons this year, I chose flip flops for summer.
How I Made Them: I found an flip flop image online (Goggle image search) and printed that out to use for my template. I cut out the main shape from handmade papers in blue or purple. I glued ribbon onto the shape to be the part you slip your foot under. Glued the shape to the card and wrote Happy Summer with a gel pen. On the inside, my verse is:
Open-toed on the
Orange sunsets over
sandcastle spotted beaches.
- If I had then, I would have used cardstock that was closer to sand in color.
- Footprints in the sand might have worked too.
