Here is my newest original crafty creation inspired by video games - a Nintendo Super Mario Bros. warp pipe keepsake box!  The warp pipe comes with a removable Piranha Plant, designed to look like the original 8-bit pixelated version for the original NES.

The keepsake box has a removable lid that has an inner layer so it fits snugly to the box.  It is 3D and is bigger (and heavier!) than it looks!  With the Piranha plant attached, it is 11" tall, and 19 1/2" around at its widest point.

I built it by stacking layer upon layer of ironed Perler Beads and glued them all together.  The inside is hollow so you can keep whatever you'd like inside of it!

Thanks for looking! Smiley

You must have the patience of several boat loads of saints - I got bored with perler after about 2 minutes! That is an amazing piece of work

That is INSANE!  In a good way, I mean.  Roughly how long did it take you to make it?
