I love quirky lighting projects, and especially video game ones. I discovered these awesome LED light pieces in the Etsy store of TheDailyRobot.

Each piece is made from multiple layers of laser-etched acrylic and are side lit by LEDs. I think they are stunning! There’s more in the Etsy store, do check it out!

Video Game Cookie Cutters

Saturday, March 7th, 2015

Etsy shop Francesca4me makes and sells cookie cutters. Not just any old ones, though – these cutters are simply awesome. I’ve picked out some of my favourites to share:

Midna from Twilight Princess:

Samus, Metroid and Logo:
metroid cutters

Majora’s Mask, Fierce Deity and Happy Mask Salesman:
mm cutters

Kanto Starter Pokemon:
kanto cutters

They are all made from PLA (Polylactic Acid or Polyactide, which is made from certain types of plants)  using 3D printing. The really great thing about these cutters is the incredible attention to detail. And they have many more wonderful cutters in the shop!

They are all made using perler beads for the designs, and a shadow box with a light fitting. I really like the effect the light has on the perlers. They’d make lovely display pieces, or great little night lights!
