1. Die cut your chosen lettering/name from the adhesive sheet.
2. Peel the adhesive carefully from the backing sheet and place the letters into position.
3. Lay the foil on top of each letter and the parchment sheet over the top.
4. Hold the Iron on each individual letter.
4. Wait until it this is completely cool then peel back the foil.
   (Peeling off too early will ruin the project as the foil will try to take the adhesive with it.)
