Project Instructions


Children should start off byfollowing the patterns on the instruction sheet and placing beads on the peg board.

Once complete, an adult should iron the pattern using the ironing paper provided. Please follow the easy ironing instructions below at a safe distance from children.

Adults Only:

Place pegboard on flat heat safe surface.

Set household iron to the medium setting. Place ironing paper over pegboard. In a circular motion begin to iron project. Let cool.

Remove paper and beaded design from pegboard. Flip design over to expose thenon-fused side. Repeat step two. Let cool.

Beads need about 10-20 seconds per side to fuse beads evenly. Depending on thesize of project (medium/large) additional heating time maybe required.


For a more rewarding crafting experience with your child, you may wish to complete the craft steps over more than one session, especially when drying time is required, or the child appears to be losing interest.
