Introduction: Duct Tape Flip Flops
Flip flops are fun and easy to wear, and even more so when made out of duct tape!
All you'll need is duct tape, a pair of flip flops, scissors,a pen, and a template of your flip flop.
To make this just trace your flip flops on some cardboard and cut the shapes out.
For this project, it would look a lot prettier if I had used colored duct tape, but I lost my purple duct tape and I'm too lazy to buy more.
This is my first project, and i hope you like it!

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Lots of Duct Tape
Cover one template with duct tape. Front and back. Don't skimp on this, unless you want crappy flip flops! It should look like a big rectangle. Then trim the edges so it actually looks like a shoe again. Step on this with the right (correct) foot and mark the spot in between your big toe and the other one next to it with the pen.
Step 2: The Tab Thingy
*****Warning***** This part can be tricky of you don't look at the pictures. Look at them!
Measure the height of your big toe and add 1/4 inch to that height. Then multiply that number by four. Cut a half strip of duct tape that length. Then make a tab with it- see the first picture. Line up the fold on the bottom with the mark you make and tape it to the base! Try it on to see if it's comfortable.
Making the straps is a very inaccurate process.
To make the straps, Make a Strip out of duct tape by folding a long piece of duct tape in half. Then put your foot on the shoe-pad with the tab between your toes and tape the strip and tape it to the tab, curve over your foot, and tape it to the bottom of the pad. Then cut a half strip of duct tape and secure the inside of the strap with the pad. (see picture) Repeat with the other strap. Then place a half strip of duct tape over the 'valley' made by the two straps. (see the picture)
Step 3: Repeat & Decorate!
Repeat with the other flip flop! Easy.
Then you can decorate with anything you want- ribbon, yarn, other duct tape, etc. I didn't want to decorate with anything. But you can, or not, whatever.
