Cover half the wax paper in the shavings and distribute evenly, but don't make them too thick! I made mine a bit too thick and it took me way longer to melt! I would recommend almost half this amount!

Turn on your iron and use at medium-high heat, iron all throughout the paper and make sure not to miss any areas! Do this until the shavings have all melted! Like LIQUID melted! ☀💨💦

This is how mine look after cutting! I know, I know, they look so ugly! But just wait, hanging in front of a window they look beautiful 💕😍

Attach thread or string and hang in front of a window! They look SO GOOD! I can't even emphasize it, this picture does them no justice! (The camera can't pick up the lighting and focus on the hearts!)
