Move away from the wall and look at your wall words. Make sure they’re exactly where you want them to be. Now flip the wall words up with the tape still in place making a hinge. Gently pull your backing paper off. If it’s sticking some and the words are not staying adhered to the adhesive paper gently rub your fingernail or scraper over the part that is not sticking.
Once you have all the paper peeled away, gently lay the paper back down and press your wall words from the center making sure that all the air bubbles are out. You’re almost done! Gently lift off the adhesive paper leaving your wall words on the wall. Again if you find they’re not adhering, just gently rub a fingernail or rubber scraper over that portion and lift it again.
