I’m keeping summer going with these fun flip flop coasters for a summer party! I love making coasters to go with a party theme and these were quick and easy to make. The pops of color are are perfect for a festive party.
Items Needed to make flip flop coasters:
- Foam Sheets
- Flip Flop Template (I used Cricut Design Space)
- Transfer Paper
- Sand Paper
I made these coasters to go along with the Flip Flop Centerpiece that will be the focal point of the table. Using Cricut Design Space, I found templates for flip flops. After inserting the image into the canvas, I resized them to the appropriate size for coasters. I liked that these were attached to each other instead of being two completely separate pieces. I changed the colors to match how I planned on having them look in teal and pink.
The pink straps were cut using vinyl. I’m still learning a lot about how to use my Cricut Air Explore 2, but one things I’ve decided is that I prefer transfer paper over the clear transfer tape. It seems easier to work with to me.
After weeding the extra vinyl away from the pattern, I placed transfer paper over the straps and used the scraper to make it adhere to the paper. Next, it was placed over a sheet of teal foam.
I used the scraper to make sure the straps were sticking to the foam. Once that was done, I cu the foam around the edges of the straps.
I used a small bit of sandpaper to go around the edges of the foam to smooth it out. It took less than 30 minutes to make a set of four coasters.
Are you holding onto summer for a bit longer? Fall will be here soon enough, but this week, we’re still in summer mode!Make Flip Flop Coasters for a fun summertime party! Made Using Cricut Air Explore 2 #flipflopcoasters #flipflopparty #diypartydecor #cricutproject Click To Tweet
