Seriously, I could play most of this game with my eyes closed and even years later, still tell you where all the secret exits are. So when we, as a family, got into making perler bead craftsI knew that making some Super Mario World themed perler bead crafts would be at the top of my list.
The sides of the cubes snap together with a little coaxing; no glue is required. By using multiple colors of beads, you can create patterns on the edges and sides. One possibility is the six-sided die using a 7-bead-wide cube.
The smallest structurally sound cube that can be made without glue is 3 beads wide, though it's a bit awkward. Once you move up to 4 beads wide, it is possible to create six separate pieces, one for each face of the cube, with a hollow center.
Be sure to fuse the beads together as lightly as possible, but still enough that they all fuse securely to their neighbors. If you flatten the beads too much, it will be difficult to snap the edges together and there will be gaps that detract from the appearance of the finished project.
Once you have the pieces fused, stack the three H-shaped pieces and use the connectors to join the layers together. Based on the less-than-perfect appearance of my sample at left, this is a good opportunity to stress that you should fuse the beads together as lightly as possible to avoid flattening them too much.
I ironed the pieces a bit too flat, and that's why there's a gap where the bottom connector meets the pink H. It is possible to fuse all six faces at once on a small square pegboard. To assemble this cube, start with one of the two larger pieces shown at the bottom of the diagram.
This will be the base. Then take one of the four smaller pieces, which will be used for the sides. Snap the piece into one of the slots in the edge of the base at a right angle, as shown in the picture at right.
The connection will feel a bit loose at first, but once all pieces are in place, the structure will be very stable.
Take another side piece, and snap it into both the base and the new gap formed between the two existing pieces. Continue around the base and add the other two sides, one at a time. Finally, take the remaining large piece and snap it on the top to complete the cube.

This method will be used to assemble all larger cubes; the main difference will be the number of "teeth" that will snap together at each edge. To assemble this cube, start with one of the two larger pieces shown at the top of the photograph of pieces, and place it before you as the base, with a single gap facing you.
Take one of the four symmetrical side pieces and position it so it has one tooth on the bottom edge, then snap that tooth into the gap in the base, at a right angle.
Rotate the structure 90 degrees, keeping the base on the work surface.
Take another side piece, but position it so it has two teeth on the bottom edge.Fuse beads, Perler beads, fun-beads-to-stick-in-your-nose/ears beads – call them what you want, I am THRILLED to have bought BUCKET LOADS of these little plastic cylinder-shaped beads.
