Easter Project: Fimo Creme Egg Keyring

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 🙂

My quest to join the Marmarati!

Loving Marmite sometimes feels like having a guilty secret.  If you dare to come out of the closet about your love of the brown stuff, you can guarantee that at least one person, if not more, will gasp in horror and recoil as though you were some sort of pervert.

Well, fellow Marmite devotees,  that there is no need to feel like a social leper anymore!  The secret society of the Marmarati will indulge your every Marmite fantasy…but like every secret society, there is an initiation test, well, several actually.  No surprise that I’ve taken up the craft challenge and having bought more jewellery supplies, came up with this…

I’m really pleased with it and have been proudly wearing it everywhere I go.  What better way to come out of the Marmite closet?

P.S. The Marmarati is not so secret, if you want to vote for my creation or join the Marmarati yourself, you can find them here: http://www.marmarati.org/list-submissions/?cid=1010  There are some pretty amazing creations on there: a Marmite fascinator and an awesome cross stitch.
