Self-adhesive decoupage print

Make sure your project is clean and dry. Make sure the surface of your project is sealed and dry before applying the print.
Carefully remove your print from the tube and gently lay flat for 48 hours before use. Don't try to roll it back on itself to flatten it out. Don't fight with it or try to flatten it.
Find the center point in both your project and your print so you get the image centered.
Along the shortest edge, pull back about 5cm (2") of the backing paper and fold it down. This is your starting edge - don't peel off all of the backing paper - you don't want to become one with the print!
Place the print on your project in the same direction it was rolled. Most images are in landscape orientation and have been rolled to portrait orientation. It is easier to work with the direction of the roll than with the direction of pressure.
Using the felt end of our blue self-adhesive decoupage applicator, squeeze the air bubbles in sweeping motions from the center outwards while slowly peeling back the backing paper with your other hand. You need to apply pressure with the tool and really polish the image onto the project.
Continue doing this until the backing paper is completely removed. Check for air bubbles along the way. If you are covering drawers or cabinet fronts, you will need a sharp craft knife to neatly trim the edges of the drawers/doors after the print.
Use the applicator tool to give the print a good buff and stick the print onto your project. Pay particular attention to cut edges. Seal the edges of the print, including any cut edges, with a water-based sealer. Do not use PVA glue to seal your print.
Since your self-adhesive decoupage print is made from PVC vinyl, you do not need to seal the top.

DON'T FORGET YOUR BLUE APPLICATOR TOOL!
Always seal with a water-based sealer or topcoat!
