Cool Kicks Flip Flops Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

Add some twinkle to your toes with a twist on fancy footwear. Whether you're ready to hit the boardwalk or stroll through a summer carnival, your flip-flops will be rocking hot style.

Step one:
Choose a pair of flip-flops with a plain band that has room to be embellished. Decide where your starting point will be on the band. It is best to try on the flip-flops and mark where the band rests under your foot so that this space can be left bare. We chose to start approximately 2 inches up from the bottom. Mark this spot by piercing a hole through the band. We used an awl, but a leather hole punch works best.

Step two:
Cut approximately 40 inches of clear 0.8mm elasticity cord. String it through the hole you created in the band and tie a surgeon's knot and a dab of adhesive. If you run out of elasticity you can add more by tying the ends together with a surgeon's knot and wrapping the knot to the underside of the band.
