I love the idea of mounting these on cool scrapbook paper to make them pop! Love the entire stormtrooper project. How did you attach the perler to the scrapbook paper?

I've been making perler magnets for some friends to put in their cubes at work, and a couple of them got creative with their dry-erase marker decorations!

Re: funkymonkey's bead things! (and PixelHobby)

Since PixelHobby seems like an extension of my bead art, I will group them together here. First, the largest magnet piece(s) I've made so far. Each of the health bars is 2 feet long, and the characters are 20 inches tall.

Wow, those all look fantastic! And I don't know how I missed your Charizard, Pikachu, and BMO. *squee!*

MK sprites are wicked!

But really, I love how that Pixelhobby piece is turning out. So darn perfect looking.. I desperately want to start making those..
