Download the PDF for the Cheeseburger Project Pattern. You will use the large square and small circle pegboards as shown on the project sheet. If you are using a clear pegboard, slide the actual-size pattern underneath it. Now, place all the beads for the design.
Ask an adult to fuse your designs. Place your pegboard on a flat, heat-safe surface. Set a household iron to the medium setting. Place ironing paper over the pegboard. In a circular motion, begin to iron the project. When ironed properly, the beads will still have open centers. DO NOT OVER-IRON as this will cause the beads to close and can make assembly of your project more challenging. Let the design cool.
Remove the paper and bead design from the pegboard. Flip the design over to expose the non-fused side. Repeat step two. Let cool completely. Once the design is cool, peel off the ironing paper. Your pegboards and ironing paper are reusable.
Note: Beads need heat for about 10-20 seconds per side to fuse evenly. Lift the paper occasionally to see how the beads are fusing. Additional heating time may be required.
ASSEMBLY: Thread the needle with brown thread. Working through the holes of the beads, sew on about 10 tan beads to the smallest piece of the bun top to look like sesame seeds.
Stack all of the cheeseburger pieces to look like the photo, then glue together.
