Something To Celebrate!

This flip flop wished a 9 year old Happy Birthday at her Tropical Party last night.

I didn't have a template so I traced one of my own flip flops onto paper and reduced the size on my copier. I then took my final card size and reduced it just a smidge on my copier to make the inside layer. The final card is about 8" long in Melon Mambo card stock.

To make the "thong" part, I just kept experimenting until I found the right length. I scored the two ends and adhered them to the back of the Ice Cream Parlor Designer Series paper and then cut a slit using my Hobby blade and inserted the toe part through the paper.

The sentiment is from Something to Celebrate stamp set which is a Level 2 hostess set in the Mini Occasions catalog. These phrases are beautifully done and cover just about every occasion.

You are a paper sculptor! How cute is that flip flop! I swapped 50 cards at Regionals yesterday - you would have been proud of me!

This is too cute. My daughter wears flip flops year round (even wore them to her wedding along with her groom) so this would be a perfect card for her birthday this next weekend.
