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 

For inspiration please see:
Round 1 Swap Gallery:

If anyone has some great sites for graphs and the like, please post it in the swap thread and I will move the link up to the third post on this page...to get us started I have added a few there already.  Also if you google image a picture, I am sure you can come up with a bunch of stuff.

I accidentally started a new thread on this...was thinking of having signups until June 20th and then sendouts on August 1st.

What do you think?

To make them all disappear I have always lightly ironed one side...just enough to get them to stick together.  Then I take it off the board and iron the other side until it is completely fused with no holes...this way it doesn't stick to the board like crazy!
