As many of you know, I LOVE bling. Especially when it's in pink. And while I RARELY wear flip flops (I don't know why, I don't have gross feet or anything and my toes are usually pedicure'd lol) I have been dying to get a pair of flip flops with some of those gems on them but some of them are pricey!
Well, I was working on my algebra quiz and of course my brain started drifting so I looked over and saw that I had a pair of plain ol' pink Old Navy sandals. Then I looked up at my scrap desk and saw the HUGE tub of gems I had just gotten at Hobby Lobby (50% off!) and then it hit me. I could just bling up my own flip flops! I already had all the tools so in the midst of solving linear equations, I started adhering.
The glue I chose to use is the E6000 Industrial strength tube (it's safe for crafting and SUPER sturdy) and best part, it dries clear so no ugly mess. You can find this at Walmart for $2.97. I then just dabbed a drop of glue onto a gem then placed it on the flip flop and thats it! Let it dry and now they are good to go! (I ALMOST posted a pic of my toes in them but I think i'll wait til my fake tan kicks in! ;)
The sandals cost me $2 and the tub of gems were $8. If I were to just take into account that alone, it only cost me $10 but since this tub is HUUUUGE, (I mean, NO DENT what so ever!) I'm sure it truly cost me mere pennies for the gems! Oh and there are gems of ALL sizes and all colors so you can choose whatever color you'd like!
Hope you get inspired to bling something up! :)
