It started with my desperate attempt to find a personalized gift for my bridesmaids. After searching the web and realizing how expensive such gifts were I came to terms that I just needed to get creative and make my own. Then it came to me, I wanted to present my bridesmaids with flip flops for the reception to allow them to have more comfort (who wants to be in heels that long in the summer heat outdoors anyway?). So I got my inspiration on.
Off I went to the local craft store Michaels. I grabbed fancy sticker letters (about three to four sheets) and of course matte Mod Podge. I continued to pick up some cheap flip flops at Old Navy than headed home to begin my first project with "The Podge".
This simple project had two easy steps, TWO! That's it! I spelled out the name of my bridesmaid with the stickers on the left flop and the word bridesmaid on the right. The second and final step was breaking out my Mod Podge, grabbing a small sponge brush and lightly brushing over the letter area. NOTE: Mod Podge is magic. It will not stay white but instead become invisible! So don't worry about perfection. It dries fast too! AMAZING!
That's how I made my bridesmaids (and myself) personalized flip flops for the reception.
