someone that responded in to the idea on the website I provided said they did it at 450 for a total of about 14 minutes.  I set my oven to 450 degrees and it took about 10 minutes.  check on them after 10 minutes, but if you still see lumps (like I did find in one of mine) give them a few more minutes.


AND OPEN THE WINDOWS!!!!!!!!!!  the smell of burning plastic is not one of my favorite things to smell.   Tongue

I'll be posting pictures of mine in a bit.

EDIT:
picture!



you can see on the maple leaf that the baking sheet I used wasn't very flat so extra plastic crept out of the cookie cutter.  Undecided  the rest of the extra plastic just needs to be broken off.

and the bottom left area of the yellow leaf has a little lump in it.  that's a partially melted pony bead.   Tongue

and it didn't show up in the picture, but the plastic kinda looks like it's marbled or something.  it's pretty neat.   Grin

a little more info...

450 degrees
10 minutes (MAYBE up to 12)
anything more, you may end up burning them like I just did.  my yellow beads started turning brown.  my red beads kinda lost their color.  this round didn't work out too well for me.  I left them in for about 15 minutes because some of the beads refused to melt all the way and burning occurred.   Cry
