Step-by-step tutorial

Shape a small piece of FIMO soft Indian red and a small piece of FIMO soft black into one thin strand each. Lay both together lengthwise.

Now roll the two strings out flat with the acrylic roller so that a sheet is created.

Cut out small circles with the small cookie cutter. These are the flower petals. Each circle should be made of approx. 1/4 black and 3/4 Indian red.

Using a bead piercing needle or toothpick, make grooves in the petals.

Place the individual petals on top of each other to create the shape of a flower.

Roll a small ball from the black FIMOsoft and place it in the middle of the flower. Use the bead piercing needle or a toothpick to pierce small dots into the ball.

Once you’re happy, harden everything in the oven on baking paper for 30 minutes at 110°C. Let everything cool down properly.

Finally, glue the ear studs to the flowers with super glue to complete your stylish poppy earrings.
