DIY FIMO magnets
These DIY magnets in cheerful colours aren’t just a practical way to keep your notes and pictures in place, they’re also a decorative home-made detail. Whether you make them in neon colours or pastel shades, they’re the perfect way to brighten up your fridge, memo board or cupboard!
Cut off a quarter of a portion of each of your desired FIMO colours.
Tip: Work in progress and left-over material should be protected against sun and heat and can be stored in a screw-top jar or in cling film to protect it from dust and dirt.
Combine three different coloured cords together, creating three-coloured cords. Now twist all the cords.
Then combine four cords at a time and roll them into a thicker cord, creating a great marbled effect.
Twist the thick cord on itself again and then fold it so that you can twist both ends together a further time.
Now cut a piece off the olive and press it into the silicon mould, being careful to fill up all the corners.
Then cut the surplus FIMO away using the FIMO blade.
Next, harden the silicon mould and the FIMO in the oven for 30 minutes at 110° C / 230° F. Then leave to cool completely.
