It came with very easy instructions and I followed exactly what it said. You need to transfer the sticker to a the sticky side of a clear plastic sheet provided. Then stick the whole thing to the Ipad. Last step, then you peel the clear plastic off and the black outline stays on the Ipad. Unfortunately, the sticker still stuck to the clear plastic when I was peeling the clear plastic off the IPad. I think I used to much pressure when transferring the stick to the clear plastic. It's fiddly but with patience, a steady hand and very slowly, the sticker is on the IPad and it looks really good. I hope this all makes sense.
