Custom Flip Flops

PostPosted by TrishkaD » Thu May 15, 2014 11:31 am

Not Rhinestone, but it could have Rhinestones added. I belong to a few bling boards on facebook and when following a thread on fabric flip flops they mentioned that had put glitter vinyl on the OP flip flops from Walmart. I had to try it out and I made these for my daughter and her friend for their band trip this weekend. Left flip flop has LION PRIDE Band on it, and Right flip flop says French Horn. Turned out super cute. I've already sold another 2 pair for $20 each. Very Very easy to do

I used glitter vinyl, took my flat iron and heated it to 320 (if not adjustable its fine, just use a teflon sheet around to make sure you don't melt the flip flop). I pre-pressed the straps to make sure that I got all the moisture out, then pressed the glitter vinyl. It didn't take long, and the carrier sheet pretty much came off by itself. I then took my teflon sheet again and pressed it one more time to make sure it was good and stuck :) I also made another set with plain Siser Easy Weed vinyl and it worked as well.

Cool! Thank you! I was wondering if there might be a melting issue.

A flat iron usually refers to a hair iron. Some have adjustable tempeture, some don't.

Do you think that is what the vinyl is that they used here?
My friend wants help making these, still trying to figure out what they used for the stones.

Glitter heat transfer vinyl is used for the monogram.

The OP said walmart, I would try online. You don't want this steps to be nylon, they melt In The press at a lower temeture than the glitter vinyl/rhinestone glue.

My basketball moms loved them. Everyone hold on, there may be something new coming at a store that you know.
