Fimo swirls

My girls wanted to make some Fimo models recently and we had a big lump of multicoloured Fimo leftover from a recent millefiori project I had been working on. We used some of it to make the bodies of parrots and chickens and rolled out long sausage shapes to curl around into baskets too.

I saw a tutorial on Polymer Clay Central a while ago and decided to have a little play while the girls were making their models. It was so simple and really effective. The tutorial shows the swirls used as pendants and keyrings, but I'm also thinking they would make great buttons and maybe even the centre of paper flowers on a scrapbook page.
