I rip off the clear plastic of the Xyron strip, then I pop in a "resin drop" right on top of the image.

Then I take both the resin drop and the image of the wax paper, and stick the whole thing onto my bottlecap.

No mess no fuss.

I'm curious though...why do you need modge podge on the top of the image if you're already putting in the resin?

not everyone uses those sticker resin ... some prefer to do it with liquid resin
they come out 100 times better & stronger as well... i myslef never had luck w/sticker resin my 2& 3yr old can pull them off in no time... images usually stays on cap sticker drop in there hand & to me that is a huge choking risk.
