How To: Use a paper punch with fimo

Use a paper punch with fimo

First of all take a small fimo punch. You can also use decorative buttons because the smaller cutters are not easily available. Now you need to take the sheets that have thickness less than one millimeter. You have to check them because the larger size shall not fit. Pop in the inlet just like a paper and try to fit. If not then use a roller to roll them to reduce their thickness. Now lift it with a ruler and then insert it into the inlet. The best way to do is to drop them in. Once it fits exactly then you have to depress the punch. Then lift off the shape using a fine edge tool. Drop it on the table. Now try not to break the sheet and carefully move the other potion below the punch. If need arises you can also freeze it for little hardness. You need to make around three flowers. Make sure you remove the sheet from the bottom of the punch or it shall be gummed up. Now to make the decorative buttons you need to place the bottom piece on the board and then use a scalpel to place these flowers over it. Press it lightly with your finger and then lightly roll it. Now use the cylindrical hollow cutter to cut the round shape. Similarly you can prepare different pattern. That's' it.
