Use a box cutter with a new blade (it has to be sharp…it makes it SOOOO much easier) and cut out  pieces.

Then you start piecing it together.

The tape you can use is pressure sensitive seaming tape.  If you are using the same pile height of carpet you *may* be able to use normal carpet tape that you melt the glue with a seaming iron BUT it’s recommended to do this .  It is soooo sticky and lets face it.

I am sure you are wondering about binding it.  I just made sure that each of the pieces that touched an edge had binding on them, ( I didn’t cut them out of the middle of the rug) and it lined up pretty great.
