Step 1

First you need to make your friendship bracelet, we made ours with three lengths of string, watch how we made it here:

Step 2

Remove 2 segments from a block of FIMO, roll out and shape with a heart shaped cutter. If you do not have a heart shaped cutter you could make a template out of card as shown below.

Step 3

Use a pencil to inscribe ‘best friend’ across the heart, making sure you leave a gap in the middle. Create a hole at the top of each side of the heart. Use a knife to cut the heart in half.

Step 4

We decided to add some FIMO metallic powder to give our heart extra sparkle!

Step 6

Once your heart has cooled down, use a STAEDTLER Lumocolor permanent pen to go over the letters.
