Download the pdf of the U R My Valentine Project Pattern. You will use the small heart, large square, and large hexagon pegboards to create your projects. If you are using a clear pegboard, slide the actual-size pattern underneath it. Place your 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 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: For the Heart Frame, cut your photo to fit the heart shape. Glue it to the back. Then glue the heart shape to the square. Add the feet by turning them at right angles to the square and sliding them into place.
