What is a lightbox? Because your flipflops looks amazing when pictures in them! I need to do that with my bows.

I use the DRR, I originally used E6000 but all 3 pairs I made the ribbon eventually came off. I used Shoe Goo on the last 3 pairs I made and they have held up

Those are very cute. The more I see the covered straps the more I like them. I think that is what I'm going to start doing. Thanks for sharing pictures.

I love the brown flip flop with the side bow. I would have never thought to do that. How different is that from others we have seen??? Great job. I haven't tried the braid yet, but I do have the instructions. I love the look...I hope to find some time to try that soon. Thanks for sharing your pictures and the site for the drr...I'm heading there now

Where do you buy your Shoo Goo? I want to find it locally so I don't have to pay shipping. I think I remember someone mentioning Shoo Goo is at Ace Hardware.

Thanks everyone for sharing your pictures, ideas and how you do your flip flops. I think for my next ones I'm going to try just gluing some ribbon (drr if I can get it in time..if not just regular) to the straps. Not sure about putting it on the soles...I love the look just not sure how that will hold up. Any comments on that? When usuing E6000 on the total length of the ribbon are you having a problem with it seeping through the ribbon? How are you handling that?

how do you attach your centers? The rhinestone buckle is cute. Do you just put the e6000 on it and press down?
