HOW-TO

  1. Apply a vinyl sticker to the center of a postcard, pressing firmly to ensure a tight seal.
  2. Lightly brush paint over the sticker in a vertical direction, and then repeat horizontally, making sure to brush well around the entire outline of the sticker.
  3. Let dry completely before peeling off the sticker.
