Use buttons, ribbons or vintage jewelry to create your own version of glorified flip-flops. Here are a few ideas...
I used skull buttons from JoAnns for these McQueen inspired projects.
What you need:
black flip-flops, two buttons, two black rubber bands and a toothpick.

|with a toothpick slide rubber band half-way through shank|
|with each loop do the following: pull it down, under and then over the button|

|if skull buttons are too much for you, just use some other pretty buttons|
|measure each side of the flip-flop, cut and burn edges to prevent fraying|
|apply E6000 glue to the back of zipper trim with a toothpick|
|glue zipper trim and secure with clothes pins and let dry overnight|
|remove button shanks and the "cross bone" parts, file with sanding paper|
