Next place grease proof paper (super easy to find and buy, check supermarkets and food stores etc.) on top of your design.
This will stop your hama/perler beads from sticking to the iron, making the design easier to remove from the board supplied with your hama/perler beads.
Set your iron to "hot"/"linen" WITHOUT putting water in it then iron your beads on the "hot"/"linen" setting.
I ironed my beads for roughly a minute per pattern, broken into 10 second intervals, moving the iron in small circles.
Wait for the design to cool - when the grease proof paper had cooled and started to peel off of my design of it's own accord I left it all alone for an additional 2 minutes before removing it.
Take more grease proof paper and place your design on top of it -ironed side down.
Place more grease proof paper on top of your design, sandwich it between the 2 pieces of grease proof paper.
Iron your design more to melt the non-ironed side - this will help to stop it from falling apart, making it stiffer.
You do not have to iron both sides, if you like the look of the un-ironed side leave it as it is.
