Step One: Get buffing!

Take the cloth and buff the utensil pot to remove any dirt or dust that might prevent the mosaics from sticking.

Step Two: Cut the Smart Mosaics!

Lay your Smart Mosaics sheet down flat on the table, with a protective surface underneath it, such as a chopping board. Take your utensil pot and sit it length-ways on your sheet, buffered up to the edge. This will tell you where you need to cut.

Take your craft knife, and make a clean, straight cut between the mosaic rows. You'll be left with a strip of mosaics that is the height of your utensil pot.

Step Three: Fix the smart mosaic tiles in place!

Take the strip of mosaics you cut, and turn it over on the table. Unpeel the backing paper from one side by an inch or so, and press the utensil pot into it - lining up the mosaics with the top and the bottom.

Step Four: Fill the gap

If the strip of mosaics didn't wrap the whole way around the utensil pot and there's a gap - don't worry - you can fill it. Take the off-cut of mosaics from earlier and line it up with the gap.
