Default Flip Flops?

I guess this is a two part question- I would love to add to the mix some embellished flip flops for the summer but having some issues.

1.How do you get the flower to stay on the flip flop? I have added some flowers, but they fall right off with the glue gun- should I use another adhesive, and which do you think will stay on the plastic of the flip flop?

2. What site do you order your flip flops from at a discounted rate? I searched but only found ordering crates which I don't need.

If you got this far with this post- thank for reading. Any help is appreciated!

I haven't made any with just flowers, but I have done the ones you wind the ribbon around and then decorate. The hot glue holds on these very well, but it is on the ribbon, not the plastic. Maybe e-6000 as it seems to hold very well. I guess you could get a couple of pair at the dollar store and experiment--then share the results with us!

make sure that when you are doing the ribbon on your flip flops that your using a crochet hook to put the ribbon down in the wholes athe the base of them. They look more finished that way. Hobby lobby has some that aren't bad. also at the start of flipflop season you can also get the old navy ones on the 1.00 sale that they have every year.
