    Go over it with a flat tool such as a scraper

    You might be able to push the air bubbles out with a credit card.

    You could try a tiny pin hole to let the air out as you run down. If you have a left over scrap, put a tiny pin hole in it to see how noticab!e it will be. If very noticeable, try a marker same color to disguise hole.

    Prick with a large sewing needle many times. Then try rolling it flat with a pastry roller.

    You might also try heating up the bubbling tiles as much as possible using a hair blow dryer.....keep it moving so as not to get one place too hot. This may reactivate the glue so you can roll it flat with a pastry roller as RGS187396 suggested. This may take some time but if it solves the problem, it is well with it.

    With a very sharp exacto knife or a razor blade (be very carefull) cut small slits in the bubbe. Press the air out, it shoukd stick down and the slit should not be noticeable. If it will not stick back down, water down some white glue and use a toothpick to put glue into slit and press down. Hope thus helps!

    1. Gently pierce the bubble with a straight pin.

    2. Using a squeegee, carefully smooth paper, working air towards the pinhole.
