    No messy glue? Did they come with stickies on the back? Do you think they'll stay? You did a really great job, but I'm so intrigued! :)

      They have some glue on the backing that melts when hotfix tool is placed over the crystal. Basically you place the crystal where you want it, hold the hotfix tool tip over it for a few seconds so the heat can go through it, and you're all done! It's glued. yes, I think it will stay. It's on there pretty darn well :) Thank You. It's pretty simple.

        Hello BDW friends!

         

        OK, so I have been OBSESSED with finding the perfect wedding shoe. Should they be hot strappy heels or cute yellow pumps? Would barefoot be ideal, or will that be too 'hippy.' Hours upon hours I have spent searching Endless.com, katespade.com, zappos, etc. only to have the perfect jeweled strappy sandal or awesome ballerina slipper out in my size! Then I was reading my fitness mag, and they featured a company that makes really cute ribbon sandals in Africa AND the money goes to the women's education. What is also cool about these, is that the pretty straps are available in a lot of different colors/patterns (even one named 'kapowski') AND there are tons of different ways to tie the laces; I bought a them with saffron ribbons (one of our colors) and bought an extra pair of ivory, to match my dress.

         

        I am crossing my fingers that they will look great!

            I think this is absolutely fantastic! I wish I hadn't bought my flip flops already because I would have totally bought these, not just for their looks but for the contribution to a worthy cause!!! Thanks for sharing though!! I've bookmarked the page as I will probably return to the site to purchase one later on down the line. :)

              I love your shoes. I thought about doing this for my BM flip flops but it was to much time trying to find different sizes in the same color/

                  I too have been absolutely shoe obsessed, looking for the perfect sandal, flat, color, no bling (boring to some but not my thing) and these are perfect.  What makes them that much more special is the story behind them! Thank you so much for sharing!!!

                      To everyone ordering shoes through the pink ribbon project - I would love to hear a review when they come in! I would really like to support such a worthy cause!
