  1. Cut the photo out and lay onto wax paper.
  2. Following the manufacturer’s instructions, paint a thick coat of the MP Photo Transfer Medium onto the printed side of the photo. It’s important that you not be able to see the photo underneath the medium. Pick up the photo piece carefully by its edges and flip over onto the piece of canvas. Smooth the photo piece down lightly with your fingers. Wipe up any excess with a paper towel. Allow to dry for 24 hours.
  3. Once dry, dampen the paper backing with a sponge and let sit for two minutes.
  4. Remove the paper backing by rubbing in a circular motion with a sponge. Take care not to rub through the photo.
  5. When the paper is removed, leave the photo piece to dry. Once dry, there may be areas that need more paper removed.
  6. Once the photo piece is ready, trim out the photo with ribbons and embellishments applied with hot glue.
  7. Glue the photo piece to the purse
