Following the directions on the HeatnBond packaging, place the snowflake paper-side-up on the placemat, and fuse into place with a hot iron. (Kids will need adult supervision with this step, of course!)

If your design was bigger than your foil sheet, place the sheet over the un-foiled sections, and press again. Do not allow the iron to touch the finished sections, this will lift up the foil.
