Project Instructions

Step 1 Lightly crinkle foil to create texture. Gently smooth out with fingers. The foil should lay flat but have lots of wrinkles. For pattern, draw heart on foil with stylus.

Step 2 Squeeze glue directly from tube onto foil keeping glue within pattern line.

Step 3 Sprinkle beads into glue.

Step 4 If needed, use toothpick to move glue back into pattern line. If creating a pendant, press eye pin into glue to embed at top center of heart.

Step 5 As the glue begins to set, it will settle to create a smoother surface. Let dry overnight. Peel from foil.

Step 6 If needed, use scissors to cut along edges to reshape design.
