The sticker feels like a plastic screen saver for pda's and has marks on it so that you can position it and has a square cut-out that needs to be filled with the paste. The paste is spread with the help of the "credit card". The card is a little wider that the cut-out, so that works fine. After filling, gently remove the template and a nice square of thermal paste remains...
