Assembly instructions

How to assemble your PhotoPearls bead project with double-sided adhesive sheets.


Place the pegboard over the printed bead pattern.

Important! The Pegboard “knobs” must point to the right and down.


Place the beads on the pegboard according to the bead-by-number pattern.

The numbers on the pattern correspond to PhotoPearls refill colors.


  1. Remove the thin silicone paper from the adhesive sheet.
  2. Place the adhesive sheet onto the beads and press down with firm hand movements.
  3. Cut away any sections of the sheet outside the bead area.
  4. Mark the pegboard with row and column (example: 1:1).

Glue all pegboards together in the same way.


Build up your project by connecting all finished pegboards.

Start with pegboard row 1, column 1.


Now you can remove the silicone paper protecting the back of the adhesive. If you have a large project, it’s best to start removing from the center, so nothing sticks to the adhesive.


When the entire adhesive surface is uncovered you can stick the backing piece to the beads. Press down firmly with your hands over the whole area.


Now turn the whole piece over and remove one pegboard at a time. Should any bead fall out, it can easily be replaced by using tweezers.

Congratulations, you are now done with your bead project!
