Turn Broken Flip flops into DIY Stamps

"It’s so annoying when your flip flops break and it’s bad for the environment to throw them in the trash. So what can you do with your broken flip flops? Easy: turn them into fun DIY alphabet stamps, pedicure toe separators and anti-pinch window guards! Cut a flip flip into rectangles and use an Xacto knife to cut out the shapes or letters that you want. For the toe separators and window guards, all you have to do is cut openings in a larger pieces. So easy and a super useful upcycling project!"

Recently, people have been getting more innovative with their eco-friendly solutions for abandoned flip flops from the beach that I almost always try to do the same. The toe separator is pretty efficient and thrifty too. You'll never have to buy another one if one pair can last you almost eight years. That's amazing.

Such a creative and frugal way to get create items one can use from what most of us would just trash. I would never have thought of making things like this from them. I am not sure I could cut letters, but what about other shapes like circles, diamonds, simple flowers?

How clever! I break at least one pair of flip flops a year (thank goodness for Old Navy) and never thought to re-purpose them.
