Download the project pattern. If you are using a clear pegboard, slide the actual-size pattern underneath it. Place your beads on the pegboard as shown.
Place pegboard on flat, heat-safe surface. Set iron to medium. Place ironing paper over beads and pegboard. Using a circular motion, iron for about 10-20 seconds. Do not press down on the iron. When ironed properly, beads will still have an open center. Let cool.
Remove ironing paper and bead design from pegboard. Flip design over to expose the non-fused side. Place ironing paper over design and iron again. To prevent bead design from warping, place a heavy book on design as it cools. Note: Do not place iron directly against beads or pegboard. Pegboard is not designed for use in any type of oven; it will warp. Pegboard and ironing paper are reusable.
