Here are my newest projects - tissue box covers that are Nintendo-themed!  These are made with Perler Beads, ironed and fused together and then the sides are glued.  One fits a square tissue box and looks like a Mario Question Mark Block, and one fits a rectangle tissue box and looks like a retro Nintendo controller.

They slip right over top of your standard Kleenex box and are sure to add a fun & geeky flair over top of a boring old cardboard tissue box!  There is an opening in the top so you can easily pull the tissues through.

I hope you all enjoy my newest crafty creations! Smiley

That's such an awesome idea! Tissue boxes are always so hit and miss with their designs anyways. I just love how well the question box translates into the beads. It's just perfect! I think that you should make others for the other boxes in Mario.

These are awesome!!  Cheesy Cheesy Wonderful job.  I wish I had the patience with perler beads to make these, but I couldn't even make coasters Tongue

Nice. Incredible job! My favorite NES game of all-time would have to be Dragon Warrior. I'm not entirely sure I have the patience this would take. No, wait - I am sure. But a DW magnet could possibly complete my fridge in that Jerry Maguire kind of way.
