Default Having trouble with wrapping flip flops

Hey Ladies,

I made some flip flops and I am having a hard time wrapping them evenly. I used e6000 on top (instead of the bottom) of the strap to make it easier but still coming out uneven. Does anyone have any tips? I use 7/8 ribbon. Also, I am attaching a rhinestone buckle slider. How do I do that? I put the ribbon thru the buckle and then tried to attach behind the straps but it's too thick looking. HELP?

Don't know about the slider, but I wrap my flip flop straps with 3/8" ribbon.

Hello:

I just put a instructional DVD on how we wrap Fancy Flops. We have sold at least 10000 using the method outlined in the video. You can purchase it on my site, www.TheBuckleBoutique.com for only $5. I think you will find it helpful.

Thanks! Cathie

DON'T GIVE UP! Keep playing with it. I've found if I'm using 7/8 ribbon that it helps to wrap it on flops that have wider straps. Skinny straps work better with skinny ribbon. Does that make sense?

Good Luck!
