Make the white corner pieces by placing the beads on the pegboard. There are 3 different pieces in one set. You will need 8 corner sets total.

Step 3: Fuse the Beads.

Fuse the beads by placing a sheet of wax paper over them. Gently iron them at medium heat for a few seconds. *Make sure you don't over melt the beads or they will be unable to "snap into place" for the 3D effect.

Some of them were flipped kinda weird. I didn't notice that until now. If you flip them and rotate them they are all the same.
