1. Download the Springy Flowers Project Pattern. Use the large square, daisy, tulip, small circle, and small hexagon pegboards for your project. If you are using a clear pegboard, slide the pattern underneath the pegboard. Place all the beads for the design.

 

2. 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.


3. 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. Depending on the size of the project, additional heating time may be required. Since you are working on a 3-D project, DO NOT OVER-IRON the beads as it will make the centers of the beads close and can make assembly more challenging. 

 

ASSEMBLY:

Create the springy stem by wrapping a length of wire around a pencil. Remove the coil from the pencil.
