LEGO Conversation Heart Box

February 12th, 2009

With Valentine’s Day in just a couple days, I decided to build a small heart-shaped LEGO Box. It is designed to look like a candy conversation heart, complete with a printed message on the front. All thumbnails images below link to larger pictures.


The box even has a removable cover, so it could be used as a small jewelry or treasure box.



This isn’t the first time I’ve posted a project with a love theme. I have featured a Legend of Zelda mosaic with an ‘I Love You’ message as well as a love sign language sculpture.

Small LEGO Mosaics

February 12th, 2009

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything new. Lately, I’ve been spending most of my LEGO hobby time on my BrickLink store. I miss building, so I decided to build a couple small LEGO mosaics. I’ve done several other 8-bit video game inspired mosaics in the past (e.g. Pacman, Dig Dug, Zelda, Mario, Pengo) but these two are the smallest. Even at this small size, the characters depicted are still recognizable.

The first mosaic is a close up of Mario Brothers Toad. Click on the thumbnail image below for a larger image. I used this picture as a building guide.


The second mosaic is the green dinosaur from Bubble Bobble. I found this article and adapted it to LEGO.


On this mosaic, I decided to cut the LEGO baseplate to the shape of the mosaic. I’ve used this technique before on several mosaics including my Starbucks Coffee Mosaic.

Here is a picture of the back so you can see how I’ve cut the baseplate. I wrote a post a while back detailing my technique for cutting LEGO base plates.
