How do I stencil a dresser?

I have just painted my chest of drawers and a dresser. I want to stencil them. I have the stencil and paint tape. I would like to know how to stencil them. I'm not sure how to align them next to each other. Thank you all. You're awesome!!

    I would recommend you practice on a piece of scrap wood or something along those lines. It's tricky and you don't want to ruin your paint job practicing. Another tip is to use paint sparingly.

    Good luck and post a project when you are finished.
