Step 3: Finish off the vinyl

Once you've cut the vinyl and it looks like the cuts have penetrated the vinyl layer without going through the wax paper, it's time to take out all the bits of vinyl you don't need, bit my agonizing little bit. I recommend using a dental pick or something similar; if it helps, pretend you're a paleontologist. If you mess up and remove something important, DON'T PANIC; you can often replace the piece almost exactly where it belongs, or you can cut that piece again on new vinyl and add it back.

I unfortunately don't have pictures of taking these pieces of vinyl off, but it's pretty straightforward. Below is what it looks like when you're done.
Sweet project, nice and simple. I usually leave all the essentials piled on my nightstand, but sometimes I miss that somehow! I'd have to think of a better spot to put the sticker though, sometimes I skip the mirror if i'm in a rush.
nice 'bile, dunno where I can find the material you used here in the islands though but I'm thinking of using computer-cut vinyl stickers, that should do the trick.
sorry that's supposed to be 'bile not 'bile :D
dang, i meant 'ible, dang autocorrect :D
HAHA, I read the first correction you made and did a double take.
Now THAT'S a great idea! I'm going to do something similar for the mirror by the door :-) <br />
a very cool project! <br>love it! :D
