It is so easy! I love to garden and have a zillion garden magazines. I just took packing tape(I used cheapo and would suggest a little more expensive kind, looks nicer)stuck it to the picture. Then trimmed it to just bigger than what the tape was covering and soaked the magazine picture and tape in hot water for a few minutes and then you kind of rub on the back side of the magazine and the "back" side of the page comes off. It doesn't really make it transparent, but sort of. Really easy but looks nice, or at least I think so.
