- Ironing paper brand Hama Beads;

Let's start preparing a work plan and placing over the Hama Beads base or other brand, the beads, and a pair of common tweezers, the tweezers are not mandatory but are very comfortable if you work with very small fuse beads such as 2,5mm diameter.

So, helping visually with the pattern, we begin to place the beads on the base, with the hands or with the tweezers, of were talking about just above

Continuing with this creative hobby, you will notice that it is quite relaxing, you can also listen to music in the meantime, only now and then you might have some difficulty in picking the beads of the right color, especially shades very close as the different types of pink or blue. In addition to what you will try to be organized, careful and precise, some beads will eventually fall, or get under the table leg, or between the keys on your keyboard ...

During the work, taking more familiar with the manual and observing the number of beads needed for each color on the pattern, you can begin to select in advance the beads and split them into small piles.

In my case, remember that it was my first job, it took about 1 hour and 30 minutes to the overall crafting of the keyring.

Once finished placing all the perler beads necessary, take the ironing paper, in my case a sheet of 15 x 15 cm and settle over the design, then we prepare the iron, reading the instruction manual included Hama Beads with the ironing paper, the right temperatures depending on the size of the beads:

- For fuse beads mini 2.5mm, set the iron on wool setting
- For fuse beads midi 5mm, set the iron on cotton setting
- For fuse beads maxi 10mm, set the iron on linen setting

"Apply the iron to the ironing paper for just a few seconds using smooth, circular, movements. Never hold the iron completely still. After having applied the iron for a short period, the colour of the beads will suddendly be more clearly visible through the ironing paper; this means that the ironing is finished."

Depending on the size and the creativity of those who realizes you can turn these compositions in keychains, necklaces, magnets and so on ... We turn it into a keychain, using the common kit metal keychain that you can buy in stores at reasonable prices, in my case the package was 1 Dollar.
