    I had a real problem with my WonderUnder backing not wanting to separate from the web once I fused it to the fabric. Did I heat it too long? I can't figure out what I did....only held the iron for about 8 seconds, but it's on hot, dry. Is that wrong? I thought I followed the instructions, but this is only the 2nd time I've used it. Help!!!

    Once in awhile mine does that. I simply bend a corner a bit to get it started then it usually goes fine.

    I lightly scratch it with the edge of my scissors, enough to get ahold of a bit, if I can't get it to come up at a corner.

    I take a straight pin and drag the point over the wonder-under paper to tear a hole in it. The paper is quite easy to remove once you've got the hole to start pulling it.

    I have that problem when it is getting old. I get the glue is a little more stubborn.

    I use tons of wonder under. I have found that if there is any steam at all it won't peel . Also cut all the way across the back with a pin.

    I generally take and edge and roll it a bit between my fingers. It usually lets loose enough for me to grab it with tweezers and pull.

    I guess I've been lucky. I've never had that problem.

    Your leaving the iron on it too long. Just iron it for a second or two. Also, let it cool for a minute before trying to remove the paper. When ready to remove the paper, score it with a pin and it should come off easily. :-)
