I love doing ribbon sculptures. I've never seen a flip flop one though. I might be able to figure something out if I play with it over the weekend If I do think of something I will try to post pics. or some sort of tut (probably won't be the best tut ever ) on Monday .......

I worked on it some today and hubby helped me figure out how to get the ribbon to keep a flip flop shape in 3D.... it was kinda tedious. Then, when I went to add the straps, they were SO tiny and I got frustrated b/c I'd already been at it for over an hour :/ SO, I threw it all out in exasperation! I will try again tomorrow but if you are interested I can try to explain what we did to make it hold it's shape and then you could give the straps a go?
