Title: Flip Flop Fun
Hostess: Cook 22(Sabrina)
Keyword: JUN13VSNH
Day/Date: Saturday 8th June
Time: 2:00 PM EST


It's not often that it's warm enough to wear flip-flops here other than on the beach. But I love being able to wear them all the time when we holiday abroad - it amazes DH that I can walk miles and miles in them, trekking over rough ground and clambering down steep cliffs. Function definitely triumphs over prettiness for me, as in the second attached photo.

But you can make your Flip-Flop (swing) card as pretty as you like .

There's a tutorial HERE, and a fancier Z-fold Swing card HERE or maybe you're lucky enough to have one of the Sizzix Flip-it dies .
(If you follow the first tutorial, I strongly recommend taking a peek at the downloadable template guide to the cutting and scoring. It's quite some time since I last made one of these, and it certainly helped me!!)

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++



My challenge is simply to make any flip-flop (AKA swing) card using either of the tutorials listed above, or a Sizzx die.
