Over the Hill Birthday Gift Idea....{and giveaway winner!}

CONGRATS and ENJOY your cute, cute button jewelry, Kellie!




Ok....I think this might be the funnest gift idea ever for all your "Over the Hill" friends. I saw a variation on this idea recently and I am kicking myself that I didn't make note of where (maybe Tip Junkie?) If anyone knows, please e-mail me so that I can give credit where credit is due. Anyway, when I saw these "flippin 40 flip flops" I immediately knew I had to make them. Last weekend, I was invited to a surprise party for a friend of mine turning 40....much to her dismay! And I was so excited I finally had the chance to make a set of my own to give.




Aside from being a funny gift, I also wanted it to be something she would actually like and use. Not just a plain jane pair of rubber flip flips for the pool. I found a really cute and affordable pair at Walmart and added some of my shabby {no sew} rosettes. I am loving this fabric I found at Hobby Lobby too....very funky chic!




If you missed my tutorial on how to make these cute rosettes, you can click here to read all about it!





I hope my old codger, over the hill, 40-something friends can take a joke! It is out of sheer love from me and utter torture for them that I give these. Am I a great friend or what???

LOVE the rosettes on yours. How did you attach them to the flip flops? I bought 11 pairs of white flip flops for the ladies I'll be teaming up with for discussions in my MOPS group this year. I was going to add a white button with a "diamond" bling in the center, but not sure how to get them to stay on the flops.
