I had an idea of making a garden on a button but then I watched The Princess and the Frog and I changed it a bit to a lily pond with reeds, flowers and a tiny little frog. 

Finished Item


I used fimo clay and the base is a button from my big old button tin, have never made anything like this before, I usually just make earrings from fimo but I am really pleased with how this turned out and it was very fun to make.

Step-by step pics


It is under 2 inches which I found not too bad to do in fact and I know my froggie has no front legs heehee!

One last picture before baking


Hope you like it! x

Wow, that is really, really neat! An idea for my toddler. He likes to use clay and make snakes, lizards and frogs. Then he makes a big flat pond for them. I'll give him a coffee jar lid to try this idea on.
Thank you for the idea!
