First Anniversary First Post Combo Breaker I've been Money Tipped!
Hi, I purchased my first Fimo this week as I would like to make hanging gingerbread men to give as little gifts this Christmas. I’ve found I can only get a max of 2 out of each block and that’s if I’ve done it thinner than I wanted to. I’m finding it £2+ after postage, is there a cheaper option? I’ve seen some good value sets with lots of colour but I just want to make gingerbread men!
what do others use?

    The traditional answer would be to make salt dough - if you don't know it you might find it worth looking up.
