Details of swap:
This swap is dedicated to the many crafty ways to use Perler beads (or any generic brand of this type of bead). If you dont know what a Perler bead is http://www.perlerbeads.com/
is a really good place to start. There are other brands of this type of bead, I personally dont know what they are called, but if you know a brand, please leave a message in the thread!
Basically this swap should be pretty easy, it would likely be a good first swap if you are a newbie. You will make 3 medium items or 4 small items out of Perler beads (be creative, there are the multi colored, glow in the dark, and sun catcher beads) based on the info that your partner provides you. And make sure its something your proud off and would like to recieve if you were in your partners shoes.
Also, if you have experience with Perler beads, please dont send something you have already made and no longer want. Please make sure that the item is made for this swap, and based off your partners info! No one wants hand me downs
