Attach Mat

Turn the page picture-side up and hold the pre-cut mat over the page to decide where you want the image in the opening. Do not let the exposed tape touch the mat until you have decided placement.

Secure Mat and Picture

Turn the mat and attached page face down on your clean work surface. Press firmly on the back of the tape to ensure it is well adhered to the mat. Avoid touching the front side of the mat with your hands, as you risk smudging dirt on it.

Frame Artwork

Place the mat and attached art into your frame.
