2. Print the photos (reverse images) onto T-shirt transfer paper.

3. Cut out the images on the T-shirt transfer paper and pin to tablecloth for placement.

4. Place the images face down onto tablecloth.

5. Set iron to the highest setting before steam (do not use steam setting) and iron pictures onto the tablecloth one at a time.
