Download the Flower Flip Flops Project Pattern. Place the beads following the pattern.
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. 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 pegboard 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. Depending on the size of the project, additional heating time may be required. DO NOT OVER-IRON the beads as it will make the centers of the beads close and can make any assembly you do with your project more challenging.
Assembly: Wrap the strap of each flip flop with rick rack or cotton ribbon. Hold in place with glue—glue the fabric ribbon to itself, not the strap. Glue the Perler flowers onto the ribbon. Let glue dry completely before wearing.
