I bought the molds sold for use with the modge podge melts , I used the melts and normal glue sticks , the results where hit and miss , the best ones are photographed bellow. The melts are expensive at £8.99 for 16 sticks so I ordered some fimo and 2 molds (pictured bellow ) and tried them out . In my opinion the fimo is far better , the details show more and there is less to trim away with your craft knife .
The heart box was made using a silhouette studio cut file , cut on my portrait machine , the heart paper is home for Christmas by papermania . I've added a scallop border (cut on my machine ) and home spun style ribbon from the ribbon box. The roses and doves are fimo molded shapes. The chocolate marzipan hearts are from Aldi , they are so yummy.
challenges entered for the heart box :
paper players : valentine card or 3-D project with a" food or treat" theme .

The fimo embellishmemts
the purple molds are handmade , I bought them on e bay ( quite cheap )
well I'm truly hooked on fimo /molded embellishments , I will no doubt buy more fimo colours and more molds . As for my silhouette portrait I love it and don't know how I crafted without it , my one regret is I didn't buy the big machine (the cameo ).
I hope you found this review helpful and try your hand at making your own , it's such fun and will be cheaper than buying embellishments in the long term.
We are invited to dinner at my Mums tonight , I'm taking the heart box filled with chocs , I know my Mum will love it.
enjoy the rest of Sunday and happy crafting. janex
