Try carefully using a putty knife
If there's still some left or the putty knife doesn't work then try "Oops!"
You can get it in a little bottle
Follow the instructions it's great

Both 'oops' and 'goof off' are good products for this. Also the edge of a knife works well. Use it like you are shaving and carefully remove the unwanted paint.

If the trim is stained, use a scotch pad, the kind that doesn't scratch. Works great. You may want to try it even if the trim is painted.
