egg

My cousin is allergic to chocolate (poor thing) so I decided to make this cool non-edible creme egg keyring as an Easter gift.

The creme egg bead is made from fimo.  I bought this one, but they look easy enough to make yourself, just remember to etch the star shape on the egg and prick a tiny hole using a pin in the top of the egg before baking according to packet instructions (to screw your eyepin into when it is cool)  Then attach to a keyring finding.  I bought a packet of 3 for 99p at The Works.  To finish off I used 3mm ribbon in three colours, red, yellow and purple (like the creme egg wrapper) and tied a bow around the chain of the keyring.

I’m pretty pleased with the result.  But it makes me hungry looking at it 🙂
