  2. Open the window mat and tell the print that you love it and it’s going to be okay.IMG_2153
  3. With a very sharp knife, carefully cut along the adhesive hinges.IMG_2155
  4. Set the print free! Well, actually, put it in an acid-free folder and label it. Include any ephemera that may have been lurking beneath.IMG_2157
