How to Make Your Own Flip Flops

1. Cut several equal length ribbons (enough to cover the top of the shoes). Make sure the ends are at an angle to help prevent (or slow down) fraying. You can also put a little clear glue on the ends if your ribbon frays.

2. Start tying the ribbons in the middle and work out towards the edge of the shoe, making sure to alternate colors for variety.

3. When the tops are completely covered, tie buttons or other embellishment on with fishing line or embroidery thread.
