Fimo cane flowers :)

11 Comments

I haven’t posted or been very active lately.,. I haven’t really had any inspiration. BUT, today a parcel arrived with some of my nail goodies that I ordered. So, I was very excited to try out some new things 🙂

One of the things I ordered was a “fimo cane”. I’d never heard of these until a few days ago when I came across one online. I really like the idea of it because you can get SOOOO many pieces out of one stick (I’ve hardly made a dent in them). I paid about $1 for one stick, I think it’s good value 🙂 Here are some pics of the fimo canes, I just used a box cutter to cut them. If you want a more comprehensive tutorial, here is a YouTube video.

Fimo Cane tutorial

 

The flowers are tiny and adorable! But, quite hard to cut really thin, after a few I got the hang of it.

For this manicure I used The Face Shop (“Face It”) glitter purple and added a few flowers. Simple and cute. I hope you like it!

  1. Awww they’re so cute! I have been wanting to buy them for some time now but I’m worried about the cutting of the pieces! Are they hard to slice with a pen knife? I keep thinking i might slice really irregular pieces 😦

    • I’m not sure about a pen knife. I would recommend a box cutter (in the video she uses some kind of thin blade). The problem with other knives is that they might be too thick.. but it’s worth a try. I love crafty things, so I enjoyed doing it 🙂

  2. So cute! They kind of look like 1 stroke flowers.

  3. I recently bought some of these, I have flowers, fruit and just some cool patterns! can’t wait to try them after seeing this, thanks!

  4. They are really cute indeed. But I prefer the pre-sliced fimo’s. I could never slice them so nice as you did.

    • Yeah! It’s a whole process if you cut them yourself. The ones that I’ve seen in Korea are quite thick (or about the same as the ones I cut) so I figured it was worth a try 🙂
