Who would have thought the Booth brothers would be actors AND fashion mavens?

This is an adorable project!

I love these! I even made a pair (which I'll post when I find the connector from my computer to camera)! And if you were like me and had flip flops that totally clashed with the ribbon color, just paint them with some acrylic! Works well and is very nice!
