Flip Flop Album

Flip Flop Albums are alot of fun to make!! They are cute and cheap! What else can you ask for! LOL Basically you take a cute pair of flippers trace them out on to card stock. Cut them out, punch the holes for the holes for the ribbon. The ribbon holds the book together.
Cut off the thong on the right flip flop. Glue the cut out flip flop to the flipper. Note: If you want to decorate the pages before you punch the holes that is fine too! I would have probably done that if I were adding pictures to this album but I didn't. I didnt' because I am going to give this album away to kids with cancer. Check out the Scrapping Alittle Sunshine Project for more info!
You are now ready to decorate and embellish your pages!!
Here I added lines so a sweet little girl can add her own journaling! I used stamps and embossed these flower and butterfly. I also used a brad and a button.

If you dont want your flip flop to look thick like I it is here... You can not add so many embellishments. I ended up taking out 4 pages out of this album because it was so thick (not shown here). Good Luck and most importantly have fun!!! These make great gifts!! Maybe you can brighten someones day!!!
