Always work on a sturdy table
Place beads on the pegboard and, when you are satisified with your design, put a piece of baking paper over the top. Now take a hot iron (pre-set to about 200 degrees C) and, using a circular motion, iron carefully over the design until the beads have fused together (this only takes a few seconds). Pay particular attention to the edges. THE IRONING MUST BE CARRIED OUT BY AN ADULT. Let the beadwork cool for a short while, remove the paper and the beadwork can be pulled off the pegboard. The non-ironed side of the beadwork is the front. (You can lightly iron over this side to give added strength to the finished piece.)
