Make sure each stretcher bar is flush up against the edge of the painting! Otherwise your final product might not come together well. 

Also take note that the skinny (narrow) half of each stretcher bar should be facing inward

Step 3: Use tape (not included) to secure the bars in place on the canvas.

    If my canvas is 30cmx30cm do I purchase the stretcher bars the same size or larger? Thank you!
