Simply Sunday "Treats"

***If you are looking for my Lasting Memories layout, please scroll down.***

Welcome to another Simply Sunday challenge over at Getting Cricky and it's all about party treats and/or favors.  I am so excited about today's challenge because I did something new!!!  I am just flipping over the use of the Splashtastic Summer stamp set.  Now remember, for EVERY stamp set you purchase, Kristal is donating $1 to a charity.  Again, that's for EVERY stamp set, not just right now, or last week, but forever as long as she sells them.  So when you are thinking about purchasing a set, think about how you will be helping a charity also.  Isn't that just a great feeling too?
My hubbies co-worker has a birthday coming up and I thought this would be so cute to make for her and fill it with some candy.  I got the free SVG file here and cut it with my E-craft.  Now the ladies that showcased their flip/flops made it look easy, but I have to admit I was having a bit of trouble making this.  I love making 3D projects, but this one was a challenge for me.  My seams didn't match up and when I put it all together I did have some gabs.  But a little ribbon and some hot glue and you can hardly tell.  Next time I will know where my first mistakes were, but all in all I think it's pretty cute. 

I added the "don't flip out" sentiment and attached it where a shoe label would be.  

I also added a flower between the straps just to dress it up a bit.  

So what do you think?  Cute eh?  I think so.  Now go make some treat containers or party favors and head on over to Getting Cricky and join our challenge.  If you have the Splashtastic Summer stamp set, use it and flip/flop your way over there!!!
Now I also want to remind you Getting Cricky will be having a U-Stream and blog hop this coming Friday 8/19.  As I get more details I will add them to my posts, but make sure you look out for it.  YOU WILL NOT WANT TO MISS THIS ONE.  Remember also that she does have 3 new stamp sets for pre-order right now, so hurry on over to and get your set before they sell out.  They are going like hotcakes...
