Default Re: Tell Me Anything About Flip Flops

1. How much do you charge? $15

2. Do you just buy the cheap dollar ones from Dollar Store or Dollar Tree? Yes I do....I have used Old Navy and cheapies and there is not much difference...

3. Do you wrap or tie ribbon? Wrap the straps and then attach the bow with hot glue

4. If you tie do they stay or do you add glue to each tie?

5. I guess I should use e6000 to be safe? I have never had any trouble with mine and I always hot glue

6. Does anyone know how to make an interchangeable bow for them? (I am thinking a black pair with a set of interchangeable bows)

7. How do you attach the bow to the front? glue
