Skill Level: 

Beginner

Approximate Crafting Time: 

0:30

Supplies and Tools:

  • Flip Flops (to trace)
  • Scissors
  • Crafting board

Directions

Print
  • Step 1

    Trace your foot or a pair of flip-flips on cardboard to figure out what size shoe you'll need to make.

  • Step 2

    Use your scissors to cut out your design.

  • Step 3

    Cover the cardboard in Duck Tape®. To insure clean lines, start at the top and place the tape horizontally, folding over the excess tape on the bottom.

  • Step 4

    For the straps, cut a 14 in. long pice of Duck Tape® and fold it lengthwise sticky side to sticky side.

  • Step 5

    Cut a hole in the top of your flip-flop where your toe would be.

  • Step 6

    Thread the strip from step 4 through the hold and tape the middle of the strap to the bottom of the flip-flop.

  • Step 7

    Place the flip-flop on your foot to measure the length of the loops. Tape the straps ends to the bottom of the shoe.

  • Step 8

    Cover the entire bottom of the flip-flop with a layer of Duck Tape® and cut the edges to create a clean edge.

  • Step 9

    Repeat steps to make a matching pair. You can decorate and personalize your flip-flops, too!

    interesting but i would added padding and try to add more height.


  • cdyonne about 20 months ago
    Interesting.


  • Asiam2B about 20 months ago
    I Made a few sets of these in the last few years for myself and my kids. What i did differently was to use hardboard for core stability and sturdyness, or if you want a built in grid peg board (the only difference between the two being the holes ) As well as i added cork cabinet liner to the bottom for anti slippage and a bit of impact absorbtion . I never had a problem with them braking . Also i doubled up on the thickness of the straps for durability:-) probably not normally needed however i sprint alot flip flops or not due to kids age range being toddler to 8 years old


  • tklassen about 20 months ago
    i made these once


  • tjpickard about 20 months ago
