Furikake stencils

I recently bought a few packets of stencils for sprinkling furikake to make trains, cats or rabbits. Stupidly, I read the instructions once then threw them out before actually using it. When I went to try it, the furikake didn't stay anywhere I wanted it too, and what was there came off when I took away the stencil. What's the trick?

New Flickr group: Bento Gear

Seeing how popular the What's Your Box thread is, and since I'm as curious about what other people use as bento boxes as anyone, I started a sister Flickr group for our existing Just Bento group: Just Bento: Bento Gear. This is a pool for posting pics of bento boxes, accessories and other gear, not bento contents. There's nothing there yet but I hope you'll all join and post your bento gear porn! ^_^
