Can you use Perler beads as coasters?

Place a sheet of ironing paper on this unfinished side. Again, use the iron to melt the perler beads together. While the perler beads are still warm from the heat of the iron, place a stack of heavy books on top of the coasters to help make sure the design cools flat. Otherwise, your coasters may curl up or bend.
