Presenting the Summer time Pinterest Challenge.
I chose something pretty simple that I wanted to do for a while and that I could use this summer and give as gifts. This challenge, of course, was not without its challenges. This is probably why our boards stay uncompleted. Turns out that my "to make" board disappeared, so when I tried to go back to put the links on here, I couldn't find them. I'm a bit worried about this as I had some great projects on here, but I'm sure they will cycle through again as all things on Pinterest do.
I chose two different flip flops, the first one linked below and the other one just based on browsing.

But used the tutorial on Skip to My Lou to figure out the braiding:
I made these adorable bands:
And then ran out of ribbon...hence the challenge. These band will be lonely until I can go to the Michael's an hour away for their partners as our Michael's must be the step-child of Michael's containing much less inventory.
Any way, with a FULL 10 feet of ribbon I started a new pink polka dot pair...
And attempted to move on to a little more wild zebra pair (flowers made months ago)
What I learned was hot glue could save the world and Gorilla Glue is not appropriate for crafts:
