Download the PDF for the Pretty Pink Earring Keeper and Switch Plate Project Pattern. You will use the large square peg board for your project. If you’re using a clear peg board, slide the actual-size pattern underneath it. 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 the fusing. 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: Slide the feet onto the earring keeper as shown in the photograph. Use the hook and loop tape to attach your Perler Beads switch plate over your existing switch plate.
