If you read our last post, you already know we love fuse beads. Art:Ego has come out with a smaller pack of fuse beads which are perfect for travel or even stocking stuffers! It’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas gifts. The 2,020 set of fuse beads comes in a rectangular case a little bigger than my iPhone 6s plus. Inside there are 15 compartments full of fuse beads, each compartment a different color. This is perfect for so many reasons.
I love this case because we can reuse it. When it’s empty I can purchase more fuse beads and fill it up again. It’s great for travel. Say you are heading over to grandma’s house, just toss this set and a peg board into your bag and now Jr. will have something to do. Grandma’s always have irons and a few sheets of wax paper easily fit in the lid of this case. When our case is empty I plan on letting Peyton refill it with some beads from the bucket. It’s a great way to work on her sorting skills and color recognition. Plus it’ll give me some time to get things done around the house.
If you have never used fuse beads you are missing out. There is so much you can make with them. Your imagination is the only limit you have. And fuse beads are perfect for all ages!
I’ve used a few different brands of fuse beads over the past year and I can say I am loving the Art:Ego beads. There is no smell to them, unlike some other brands. They melt quickly and smoothly when using an iron to fuse them. The colors and bright and vibrant.
