I bought this book and this "cupcakes and butterflies" kit at JoAnn's Crafts a while back. They had other kit options and plenty of bulk perler beads, too.
You could also buy a large container of "perler" beads at IKEA. When I bought them there they were listed at $5.99, I believe. That seemed like a good price to me.
So, the kids made their patterns and then I used my iron to fuse the beads together. Easy-peasy! Afterwards, I had some magnets that I wanted to add on the backside. Just glue-gunned them on.
After they were finished, I hung the magnets on the side of my fridge. Cute and handy creations!
My name is Candie. Many labels describe me including wife, mom, friend, and independent consultant. However, alone, none of them capture all that I am or love and there are too many to list. Some of my likes include cooking, crafting, and creating. Reading, camping, and spending time with my family also bring me joy. I love my life...
