It's never too early to prepare for flip flop season.
I love ribbon, flowers, and flip flops so why not put them together? This is easy and cheap. I got $1.00 ribbon on sale and a bunch of daisies for $1.99. The flip flops were from last summer. I used 5/8" wide ribbon. Just pick something that will cover the strap. And you can just wear them around the house until it's time for the Spring debut.
