Summer Things with Bling Camp Wannastamp!

OH, BOY, THIS COULD BE ADDICTING! Take a pair of cheap flip-flops and turn them into something fun and stylish! We embellished flip-flops at my Summer Things with Bling Camp Wannastamp and they were a big hit! Use your Crop-A-Dile to pierce a 1/8" hole right next to the center of the rubber straps. Run your foam sheet through the Big Shot machine using the Flower Daisies #2 Die. SNAIL the three daisies together just to make them easier to work with and don't remove the little circle in the center of each flower (that piece keeps the brad from sinking down into the hole)! Stamp the "Circle Circus" stamp in Basic Black ink (or whatever color you desire) on white card stock and punch it out with a 1/2" hole punch. Place that piece into a Pewter Build-A-Brad and then stick the brad into the center of the flowers. The Build-A-Brad can easily pierce the foam, but I used a paper piercer. You can also use our designer brads, if you prefer! Then take the flowers and place them into the 1/8" hole you made with the Crop-A-Dile. Bend the little prongs WAY back so that they won't rub your foot when you walk. I used the paper piercer to help me open up the prongs. VOILA - you've got an awesome pair of flip-flops that you'll be proud of! Recipe: Paper: Foam Sheets - 5-3/4 X 5-1/4; Whisper White Scrap Stamps: Circle Circus (P. 129 of the catalog) Inks: Basic Black (or whatever color coordinates with your flip-flops) Miscellaneous: Big Shot Machine; Flower Daisies #2, SNAIL Adhesive; Pewter Build-A-Brads (our silver Designer Brads look cute, too); 1/2" Circle Punch; Crop-A-Dile; Paper Piercer with Mat
