Step 1: Lay your chosen wrap or wallpaper, front side down, on a flat surface ensuring it’s nice and smooth.
Step 2: Lay a magazine file on top, positioning over the part pattern of the pattern you’d like to see andmark around the edge with a pencil.
Step 3: Repeat as many times as you have files, making sure you butt the edge of each file against thetemplate edge to ensure the pattern matches.
Step 4: Carefully cut out each of your templates with scissors.
Step 5: Protect your surface with old newspaper and spray your template with adhesive and then carefully stick to the front of your magazine file, smoothing as you go with a soft cloth. Repeat for all your files.
