Well... here's what I do :)
1. Use the slanted edge of a clear ruler. (The spacing/measurements don't matter to me, but if you're anal, you can use them) 2. Stick each letter sticker on the edge of the ruler, leaving lots of the sticker hanging off the ruler. Don't press them down hard, just let it kiss onto the ruler. (yes, i just invented that term) As you place them down, space them evenly and how you want them to look once attached to your project. You can do this by putting the clear ruler onto your project so you can picture the space and layout without the stickers "sticking down". 3. If you have any other elements in your Alphabet sticker phrase(ex. button, rubon, flower), put it on the table with the ruler on top of it and leave the appropriate amount of space amoungst your stickers. This way the gap is just the right size! In the example below, I had a blue heart rubon instead of the word "Heart". Genius, I know ;)
4. Once your alphabets stickers are on the ruler. Test it over your project to make sure it fits and looks awesome. If you need to adjust any of the stickers, it's easy. And they won't look crinkled. Just slide them a shimmy or gently lift them off and reposition them.
5. When they're in postition, hold the ruler&project in place and press the stickers onto the project surface. They will still be attached to the ruler.
6. Hold the ruler with both hands and rotate the bottom edge of the ruler towards yourself. This will lift the ruler from the stickers.
