Fill a shallow bowl with some tap or filtered water. Take a piece of rice paper wrapper and immerse it completely in the water. Make sure that the wrapper is completely wet. Put the wet wrapper on a large empty plate.

Note: if you use warm water, the paper will soften considerably faster. However, this may not work in your favor if you are new at it.
