Cards: Spring - FlipFlops


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
  open road
Out cruising
  top-down towards
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.
