1) Use the rotary tool and follow the outside line. If you are going to add detail then start in the middle because otherwise you will cut out the design
2) After you're done, then take the tape and paper off.
3) Draw out where the border of the picture design will be.
4) Color in with a sharpie or paint inside the border.
