I have yet to try this one… what a great way to give a new life to the flipflops hanging around at home.
Want to have your own pair of these amazing sneaker Creepers?
Flat Lace ups shoes- Could be Vans, Converse or high tops –High Tops provide more support for your ankles) ,
Three pairs of rubber thongs, give or take depending on how high you would like your creepers. You may find that you will need a larger size of thongs than what would you normally wear.
Shoe glue – I used 2 tubes.
Large serrated knife
Ink pen or pencil
Plasti-Dip liquid rubber paint
Sponge paint brush
Rubber Gloves- So you dont get glue all over your hands
Step 1: Clean the Shoes
Ensure that before you start making the shoes that they are thoroughly cleaned, Use Mentholated Spirits or nail polish remover to do so. (It’s essential to make sure everything is clean as dirt and moisture prevent glue from making a secure bond.)
justnow a halo hugs the moon, and the earth hugs the moon to her side
the mountains hug the mesas holding them close to the river
while the mesa hugs the valley close about the town
and the deer who can’t hug, touch muzzles
chickadees hug plum treebranches between their tiny feet
as you will hug me when I open the door
of all the ways to hold close, I treasure this four-armed hug
but when you go, and hugs turn into waves, we need not feel alone
the moonk [.]nows [T]thatthe Earth will hold her forever in their turning
so, hold this aware [,] ness in your heart
we are always in the middle of a hug
This is what In the Middle of a Hug became after I remove what I erased. For my youngest cousin:
Just a hug, and the earth hugs her back.
That Earth forever aware,
always in the middle of a hug.
What you REALLY WANT must be to learn how to make cheap, easy and efficient notepads that give paper an extra life before being sent to a recycling centre.
First thing’s first: Do you have a bunch of scrap paper?
(click the pics if you need to see a description of the steps)
Dig in your recycling bin. If one side is printed on, or you see blank spaces, put them aside.
Fold sheets into fours (or however big you want your notebook to be)
Use your nails to really crease those edges.
After you have a pile of folded paper, ITS RIPPING TIME!
Rip along the fold lines, stack your sheets together, making sure they line up on the top.
Once your stack is big enough, staple the top once or twice. You can also use the string from shopping bags (since it isn’t recyclable)
I like to use interesting scraps for the cover of my notebooks.
You’re done! It’s that easy. Now share them with friends (as long as you leave out the papers with personal info on it)
Note: I thought I’d try something new by using the Gallery function.
If you find it difficult/annoying/strange to read, let me know in the comments!
~~ I’m also curious to hear what you had for breakfast.
