Shoes for the 4th

Everyone needs a pair of patriotic shoes, am I right?
Well with a little effort and contemplation....

I made me a pair of shoes.

I used ribbon I found at Wal-Mart.
Some cardboard & some shoe inserts.

I used a pattern from my flip-flops I LOVE!!
Then cut out the cardboard.
Cut strips of the wide ribbon just long enough to
cover the tops and wrap over the edges.
I covered each piece of ribbon with a extra strong durable packaging tape.
The bottoms are covered in black duck tape and
should last long enough for me to tromp around town on the 4th.

I hope you like it!!
