Step 6: Remove the mat from the machine, trim as close as you can to the design, and use a weeding tool to weed the excess vinyl around the design.
Step 7: Cut a piece of transfer tape a little bit larger than your design, place it on top, use a squeegee or credit card over the tape, and then slowly peel it back. The design will be adhered to the tape.
Step 8: Place the design on the front of the frame glass, use the squeegee again on top, and then peel back the liner.
Step 9: Add small glue dots to all 4 corners on the front of the glass.
