Trendy Tuesday – Flip Flops
by Katherine Elliot

Summer time around my part of the world brings warm weather, vacation travel, and casual attire.  Why not celebrate the season in your paper crafts with the trendiest casual footwear of the season, flip flops!   Enjoy checking out some of these summer theme projects with silent versions of these fun sandals.  Flip flop shapes and stamp sets make it easy to add these to your projects.

Sometimes bigger is better.  A template flip flop shape used in the next project  features larger embellishments on a larger flip flop shape that could be lots of fun to use for that next luau theme party invitation or other summer celebration.

  3. I love anything with flip flops…. Since I am a Florida girl, they work year round for me. Thank you for including my You Flip, You Flop card this week on Trendy Tuesday…

  4. Irene Rhodes card made me howl with laughter and I love the peace,love & flip flops card saying, too. The use of the sequins on it, as well as on Jeanette Cloyd’s sun (clever sand effect) are all cards I want to make ! To quote a ‘card’, Happy ‘we’ have each other- the clever ideas are so inspiring !
