-- Separate the napkins so you have just the top ply that has the printed image.

-- Put a thin even layer of modge podge on your wooden nickle

-- place your cut out image onto the nickle

-- cover the top of the image with another thin layer of modge podge
-- pull down on your excess napkin to remove it
-- if there are extra peices of napkin that still needs to be removed on the side just use sandpaper or a nail file to remove. rubbing in a downward motion.
