well i love making this kind of stuff and you can use them in a lot of things...like make them into a necklace or put them in a scrap book.. im here to basically explain how to make stuff with perler beads. but you dont have to make cherries like i did ... let your imagination run wild ..
Aslo for more perler bead stuff look up my buddy "Daphine Springs" on cutoutandkeep.com!
first gather ur beads and peg board and a pair of tweezers (optional) to lay your beads out.
Next put on some music and a smile and start laying out your beads any way you want. I did a cherry! ^w^
Taadaa! i had to adjust it a lil bit B4 ironing .. all the beads have to be touching on the board they really dont work well going diagnaly.
(cant spell X\)
about the music thingy if your one of those people that hear their song when it comes on and starts dancing like me... be careful not to knock over the bucket of beads X< ... total face palm worthy! LOl
Next you carefully turn your iron on and wait for it to get medium hot (?) ... then take your pegboard with the beads on them and set them on the ironing board. put your ironing paper on the beads and iron in a circular motion for 10-20 seconds. or longer until all the beads are together... its on the instructions with the set of perler beads.
finally let it cool. If you want to make sure its stronger. you can put a thin layer of Mod Podge sealnt/glue/awesomeness over it to help prevent breaking it . ( no pic sorry =< )
Let it dry and VOLIA!!!!
you have some awesome perler bead creation.. i aslo created a Gir perler bead thingy lol!!
I hope this was helpful and that i explained it ok!
Now go have some fun with your perler bead and be CREATIVE!!! Thankyou ^///^
