Project Instructions

  1. Make a pattern by tracing around a flip flop.
  2. Carefully remove the plastic thing from the flip flops. Set aside.
  3. Fold a piece of cardstock in half. Place the pattern from the flips flops at the folded edge of the cardstock and trace around it to make the pages for your book.
  4. In the center of the fold, mark an area of five inches. DO NOT cut on this fold when cutting out. This will create your double flip flop pages.
  5. Cut out as many pages as desired. Place them back to back to create a folded attached booklet. Secure with glue to attach.
  6. Cut a piece of cardstock five inches long and three inches wide. Glue to the folded edge of your book to bind.
  7. Glue one side of the bound booklet to each flip flop.
  8. Make cover for your book and glue to the front flip flop. Glue the thong strap back in place and embellish front and inside with stickers and markers as desired.
