Flip Flop Magnets

Hi, everyone!  Today's Ways to Use It Challenge at Splitcoast is to use some sort of glaze on your project.  As soon as I saw the new flip flops from Our Daily Bread designs, I knew I wanted to make some magnets for my mom, the Flip Flop Queen, and for my own refrigerator as well. 

The largest images from Flip Flop Fun were stamped twice onto light brown cardstock; one image was cut out with the ODBD Custom Flip Flop Die Set, the 2nd just the straps were cut out and popped up with foam tape. The dies were traced onto a magnet sheet and cut out by hand so that they would be a smidge smaller than the paper; the adhesive was peeled off and the magnets were adhered to the back of the flip flops.   After coloring and shading, Glossy Accents were used to coat everything and turquoise gems were added for decoration.

The next photo shows the flip flop magnets amidst part of our vacation collection.

I will definitely try again and make some more colorful ones....these were kind of a trial and error, but turned out good enough to share. 

Thanks for stopping by!
