I like to use small scissors for this. Carefully
cut out the letters you need
Place them on your scrapbook page (or where ever
you're using them) and rub. That's it!
Ah, no mess and all the letters are in tact. I also like that this way gives me an opportunity to see the letter placement before applying them. And lastly, I have no idea why the 'y' is ginormous. It's the lowercase y, I checked several times, ha! Hope this little tip helps!
