Well, I have to say that is one thing I haven't yet tried ~ thanks alopez! Maybe I'll try tape on one of the pairs I have left to see if it works (because if it did, that'd be fabulous!)

LoL!

I had high hopes for the flip flop glue as well But, if I had to rate it against the other 2 I used, it would come in 3rd overall. Both E6000 and Loctite held better.

Hey Girl...how are things with you? Miss chatting with you. I haven't been here much in ages!!! I am so far behind on everything.
I have several pair of flip flops I need to get done...but this year I want to do the glued down ribbon and not the wrapped...just bought new E6000 so I'm hoping for no problems...no telling when I'll get to them...I have no inventory to speak of and I'm working on little girl's purses at the moment (or that's what I'm supposed to be doing ) Hair accessories to follow, I hope. I'll have to check out your Group Buys (like I need more supplies ).
Let me know if you try and have success with the flip flops.

Hugs,
Diane

lilsbox, I have no idea yet. I'm going to play around with them today and see what I come up with
Maxine, I saw the pictures of your flip flops, and they were adorable! How many korker ribbons did you use? The bows look so nice and full!
I'd love to make some of these for my granddaughter. I'm new at this bow stuff. We had boys and now have 2 girls in the family, and I'm going bow crazy! hahahah

Hi Donna, welcome to hipgirls!!

Thanks for your sweet compliments, I appreciate it I use at least 40 pieces per bow. I really love making korkers!

I'd love to see pics of yours when you're done

What do you put "under" the korker? Is it another bow, or just strips, or ????

I made some ON toddler flops for my daughter last year and had a HORRIBLE time as well. I tried everything i could think of to get the korkers to stick. I even tried sewing them through the straps...which didn't work. lol Eventually I ended up doing ribbon loops and a clip on the korkers. It was really a pain. I just got her 2 new pairs out today to start working on and I thought "This is going to be fun..." I'm so glad I wasn't the only one that had trouble with the toddler ones!! (.../sorry you had trouble as well. lol) Here's hoping they aren't as much trouble as they were last year!!
