Bought a bag of fuse beads and a few peg plates, and I really only used the heart!  Between my husband (who made some great Mario themed goodies) and I, we used up pretty much all of a bag of 6000 beads, plus 2 400 count bags.


Here's a link to the flickr set with all the individual coaster sets, plus my huz crafting it up.  He's cute.  It's gross.  I love it. :p

I'd totaly forgotten about fuse beads until I saw your post.  I used to love making stuff with them when I was a kid! I think my grandparents still have my fuse bead magnets on their fridge.

I might just pick up a new set on my next trip to the craft store, for old times sake  Grin

I'm telling you, i swear I liked these better as an adult than as a kid, and I loved these things when I was a kid.  Go figure.  I guess it's the more-developed artistic eye and love for kitschy or mod stuff.

I love the colours that you've chosen to use! It's really given me inspiration in terms of making homemade craft presents. I'm new to the crafting world and was wondering if you, or anyone else, had an recommendations as to what products work best?

I haven't used perler beads since I was a child but I love the creativity and freedom that comes with them. I recently came across a new company at an event in Nottingham called Simbrix, don't know too much about them but they seemed interesting enough. Has anyone heard of them?
