11  Nintendo Mario Question Mark Keepsake Box with Interchangeable Powerups! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by sarasvati on: July 23, 2008 06:21:22 PM
Hi all!

I might know some of you already from around the web, from my video game Perler Bead creations...I made a brand new one yesterday and wanted to share it!  Smiley  Actually, my fiance, Paul came up with this idea and it turned out great! 

It is a new take on a Super Mario Question Mark Block keepsake box that I have been making for a little while now... it is a keepsake box now with interchangeable power-ups that stick into the top of the box!  The box is made to look like a question mark block that Mario jumps and hits in the games, and it has a lid on the top.  The lid has two layers so it fits snugly on top of the box and is removable so you can put whatever you'd like inside the block itself(perhaps some gold coins?  hehe)

Now, I have put a tiny slot in the top of the lid to allow various bead power-ups to stick inside snugly!  The bead power-ups that I made with this set are:  a red mushroom, a green 1up mushroom, a Fire Flower, an Invincibility Star, and a gold coin. 

The block even has two sides - one is the question mark side, and one side looks like after Mario has hit the block, so you can face it around this way when you want to display the power-ups on top.  It is pretty versatile - with five different power-ups or just having the box on its own without a power-up inside, there are six different ways of displaying the box!

I'd love to hear what you think!  I have so much fun finding new ways to use Perler Beads to make these geeky video game creations!

and the photos!  I love them!!!!  so many, but I will share a few of them here - shots from L.A. - some beautiful plant life & trees, shots of Disneyland, cityscapes and buildings, sunsets... you are quite the talented photographer, I must say!  I love all of the photos, and this has been such a treat to see a different area of the world - someday I hope to visit!  Smiley

I've been creating similar Perler bead projects for a while, as presents for my fiance & to decorate our place, like these (Question Mark Block box, and Coaster Set):

Great job on the coasters & everything - I like the images that he chose!  Nice to see that great minds think alike  Smiley

14  Needlepoint - Scene from Super Mario Bros. 1 for the Nintendo in Needlework: Completed Projects by sarasvati on: July 24, 2007 09:06:36 AM

Hi everyone!  It has been a while since I posted any of my creations here, but I wanted to share my newest craft with you that I'm really excited about!  It is a complete scene from Super Mario 1 for the NES!  This has been an ongoing project over the last couple of months that took about 30 hours to complete.

The project measures about 9" by 11" and is entirely done in needlepoint, including all of the blue background.  So many little stitches...it was incredible time consuming (especially the background). 

I'm very happy with how it turned out though, and I plan on making more - I'm going to frame this and hang it up, and I'd like it to share the wall with others Smiley  Not sure if I'm going to make other scenes from Mario 1, or from other 8-bit games, we'll see!!  Thanks for checking this out!

Okay, so I finally got off my lazy butt and took some pictures of the awesome things that ashley sent me!!

First...this super awesome tote bag with a character from one of my favourite video games, Bubble Bobble / Bust a Move !!  It is super sweet & original with the buttons looking like the bubbles in Bust a Move!

The next item... this cool DS lite case!  Fits my DS perfectly and even will hold a couple of games!

And next...an awesome little Mario themed pouch!

I have definitely been spoiled by ashley!  The next item is... a super cute yoshi crochet hat!!  Here is a shot of me wearing it from the front and from the back!

And...save the best for last (even though I love everything!!)....a Toadette scarf!!  I love toadette and this scarf totally captures her image & personality (love the winking!)

This was an amazing swap and i couldn't be more happy to have such a great swap partner!  looking forward to a 4th video game swap, hopefully there will be one because i'd be up for participating again!

best of luck, tomate!

I put up a couple of different things today in my shop... going along with the new needlepoint fridge magnet items that I put up last week (pacman ones) I made these, to look like computer floppy disks!

I also sell pinback buttons but have never sold a large set before...so I listed a complete set of Katamari 1" buttons, including all of the characters & Katamari cousins!  37 buttons in total!

Thanks guys for your responses to trade...I'll have to take a look at all of your stuff today and get back to you!  Smiley
