Instructions

I am not going to go through a step by step for this project. I feel like most of the world has used perler beads and if you haven’t just read through the instructions that they come with. I will give you one tip though. Right after you are done melting the beads with the iron, wrap the perler paper around the finished product and place it between two heavy books. This will prevent the finished product from curling.turtle coasters 3 After the coaster is cooled, keep it wrapped in the perler paper and iron the reverse side, this is if you would like both sides melted.

To make the controller box (for coaster storage):

First make all four sides and the bottom of the box. One correction I would like to suggest to future makes of the controller box would be to make the bottom 2 bead rows shorter to make more contact for the glue. Currently at 25 row – needs to be at 23 rows. All the rest of the sides should stay the same.

    • Follow the directions on your Perler beads very carefully. I sat the Iron to medium heat and waited a few minutes to heat up. Lay your special paper on your design and Iron for around 20 seconds, or until your beads are melted together well.
      I flipped mine and iron both sides, just so they're all connected together really good.
      Let everything cool off for a while before you continue.
