Flip Flop Gift Tags



  • Flip Flop Gift Tag Template {download template here}
  • Colored card stock (for flip flop sole and strap)
  • Coordinating patterned paper
  • Ribbon or hemp cord – 8″ – 12″
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
  • Double sided adhesive strips
  • 3-D Foam Squares
  • Optional embellishments, such as stick-on rhinestones, decorative buttons, decorative paper or felt


Print out template and cut out each shape.

Use the cut out shapes from the template to trace the following shapes on your papers:

  • Trace template shape #1 onto colored card stock
  • Trace template shape #2 onto patterned paper
  • Trace template shape #3, trace template “v” shape (the sandal strap) onto colored card stock
  • Optional for embellishment: Trace template  flower shape onto decorative paper, card stock or felt

Cut out each shape you traced.

Use a hole punch to punch a hole in the spot marked on template shape #2 (only punch the hole on your patterned paper). Loop hemp cord or thin ribbon through the hole.

Stick a 3-D foam square to the bottom of the card stock strap, as pictured. Then fold corners under, as shown on template shape.

Attach the strap to the decorative paper (#2), being careful to put the mounting square directly over the hole punched. Use double sided adhesive to attach the folded part of the straps to the under side of the decorative paper (template shape #2), as pictured. Next, use double sided adhesive to attach the decorative paper to the sole of the flip flop (template shape #1).

Attach any optional embellishments.

Write or stamp your message onto the back of the flip flop tag. Tie to your gift, and you’ve created an unforgettable original card!
