Life is Better in Flip Flops Border
Step 1: Cut a 12″ x 2-1/2″ strip of purple striped paper for the base.
Step 2: Cut 4” x 3-1/8″ pieces of aqua, sunglasses and yellow patterned papers. Using the Flip Flops Border Maker Cartridge, punch twice along one 4″ side of each paper. Using the 12-inch Trimmer Scoring Blade, score each piece at the 2″ mark. Cut each piece in half, giving you six 3-1/8″ x 2″ pieces. Fold each along the score line so that now all pieces are 2″ x 2″. Mount all squares along the base. Add some Repositionable Adhesive inside the fold to keep the squares closed.
Step 3: Cut a 12″ x 1/2″ strip of lifesaver rings/beach balls paper. Adhere to the border as shown, helping to keep the squares folded.
Step 4: Top with stickers, popping some up with Foam Squares for added dimension.

Step 2: Using the 12-inch Trimmer with the Scallop Blade, cut a 12″ x 2″ strip of yellow paper and a 12″ x 1-3/4″ strip of confetti paper. Adhere both to the base.
Step 3: Cut six 2″ x 1″ pieces of aqua, yellow and sun patterned papers. Adhere along the confetti piece. Punch a border using the Flip Flops Border Maker Cartridge from indigo waves paper. Trim to measure 12″ x 1-1/8″ and mount on top of the aqua, yellow and sun patterned pieces so every pair of flip-flops is a different hue.
Step 4: Add a palm tree layered embellishment.
Summertime Treats Border
