If you've got a local craft shop it'd be worth looking at the buttons, i made a couple last year as gifts and used beads and buttons in the shapes of fish/planes/cars/fruit etc...

Was thinking of seeing what beads and buttons i could find,
looking on ebay and cause i only really want one of each item (possibly two if i make a spare for a present at somepoint) and they selling them in packs of lots except fruit which is a mixed pack which isnt really much good x

ETA: Sasha - where did you get the little clear beads from or did you use something else?

I actually used dried rice. But dyed it a few colours to make it pretty. Just make sure it's completely dry before putting it in. I used surgical spirit as 'rubbing alcohol.'

I made far too much so the left overs were used for pictures.

Would vodka work as rubbing alcohol? :lookround: Dawn would LOVE that rice, but we don't have any surgical spirit or rubbing alcohol. I do however have some vodka, ahem :oops: :giggle:

We have some of those bags. Tbh I'd be wary of putting fimo in, I think that the fimo would be too easy to break (little bits falling off it iyswim with the squidging around you have to do to find things). We have lots of plasticky stuff in ours, including a little bead name ring and the sorts of things you would find in Xmas crackers :lol: You could probably find little bits around the house - 1p piece, dice, etc.

I might have to give it a go with vodka. My little one was too young for them when i made the last batch but he might be getting there soon. Lord knows where the left over surgical spirit is. You'd think the first aid cabinet?! I got a bottle really cheaply from the pharmacy and i'm sure i can't have used it all up. But as you say vodka i could rustle up :hohoho:
