Hey everyone!  I thought I would share these awesome coasters with you guys, even though I didn't make them.  My boyfriend made these coasters and the box for his brother's birthday.  He made them out of perler beads and it took him FOREVER to come up with the designs for all of the coasters.  He got the idea for the box from a post I showed him on Craftster, (I think!  It was a while ago) and it took about 2 weeks to finish.  Anyway, here are the pics!

A view of the box and all of the coasters:


And a closeup of how the coasters sit in the box:


There is corkboard on the bottom of all of these to make them waterproof.  Anyway, I hope you guys like them!  He's really proud of them. 

He also wants to say that it took 8,414 beads to do this.  (bragger)  =)

Those are rock-awesome. Cheesy Would your boyfriend possibly be interested in sharing some of the patterns he used? I'd love to make a few of them (especially the green one with the mushroom).

Well, he's an art major, so he's kind of creative and just made it up as he went along.  But I have a better picture if you want!

I find I relate more to Max & Ruby as I get older.

It amuses me that your boyfriend knows how many beads went into that, lol.
