How-To: Mirror Affirmation

This one's a little hard to take a photograph of, but my mirror is better than the fickle magic kind.  Humphrey Bogart gives me a little affirmation when I check my outfit in the morning.  Use this easy technique to add a quote to your mirror.

Step by Step
1.) Format and print out a template of your quote.  Your point size should be no larger than 2.5-inches tall.  Make sure that you use a font with few curves and uniform stroke widths.

2.) Use masking tape to attach strips of foil tape, face down, to the back of the templates.
3.) Turn the templates back over and cut out the letters using an Xacto knife and straight edge.  Use scissors to cut the curved strokes.
4.) Peel the backing off of a letter and carefully apply it to the mirror.
5.) Use the back of your fingernail to buff out any wrinkles or air bubbles.  Repeat steps 4 and 5 for each letter.
