1. Measure the magnet board and draw these measurements on the back side of your wallpaper with a pencil.

2. Cut out the paper using an X-acto knife and metal ruler as your guide.

3. Apply an even coat of spray adhesive to the back side of your paper, and adhere it to the front of the magnet board.

4. Measure the front and sides of the magnetic cups, adding a 1/2” allowance to wrap around the back.

5. Transfer the measurements to your wallpaper, cut out the paper, and adhere it to the cups using the same technique.
