Melty Bead Present Boxes


Make a 3D melty bead present display or use them as fun gift boxes for your friends and loved ones!

Materials


Instructions


Step 1. Gather your supplies.


Step 2.

Start by making the design for the top panel of your box.  The design will need notches on the sides, top and bottom, as shown. These notches will be used to connect the pieces together in a later step.


Step 3.

While you are crafting, ask an adult to preheat an iron to a medium setting. Once you have finished your design, place the wax ironing sheet provided in your melty bead kit over your design. Have an adult use the iron to melt the beads. Make sure to keep the iron level and apply even pressure to the entire piece. Gently iron the beads in a circular motion for 10-20 seconds or until you can see the beads melt completely together. Let your melty bead design cool off before removing the wax paper and before removing it from the peg board.


Step 4.

Next, make one side panel with notches on the top, bottom and sides as shown. Repeat Step 3 to melt the beads.


Step 5.

Make the other side panel of the present. Repeat Step 3 to melt the beads.


Step 6.

Create a bow to go on top of the present. Repeat Step 3 to melt the beads.


Step 7.

Repeat Steps 2-5 to make additional side panels and a bottom panel, for a total of (6) panels and (1) bow.


Step 8.

Begin putting your box together, using the numbers in the photos from Step 7 & 8 as a guide. Repeat this step to complete the other half of the box.



Step 9.

Once your box is put together, glue the melty bead bow on top. You can create many different sizes and color patterns!
