Cut strips in a table saw, sand one side of them, rout your rabbet to glue the purfling into and glue it on. From there using a scraper along the outside edge of the purfling will take it down evenly all along the length of the guitar body. It should be proud (stick up a bit) anyway so you can take it down to the level of the guitar sides.

That’s the way I do it anyway. You can also glue together thin strips that you can buy as they are much to thin to cut without a special machine. that way you can get that alternating black/white stripe effect.
