Thank you, Grodan. I wanted to show you after I had seen the mice tricks. I did like it. Impressed how much the mice could learn.

Looks cute :) The question is if it's strong enough for mice to climb on? Things made from ironing beads can be a bit brittle in my experience, but maybe it's enough to support the weight of a mouse.

#3 You have to use the right brand. Like so many other things, there are difference. I used the original (Nabbi) and made a postcard ironed ONE side glued a paper on the ironeded side, wrote the address and sent the postcard from Röke in Skåne to Gothenburg and it arrived in one piece. If you want it sturdier, you can iron the pieces on  both sides.
