Best way to apply thermal paste

I got the parts I order today (damn delivery guy always leaves the box on the door step without ringing the door, like c'mon $600 worth of stuff in a big box with newegg on it, at least you can ring the door bell, twice this happened.) Anyways, I order two motherboards, cpu/cooler, case, psu, dvd drive and thermal paste. I've got to disasemble my current computer and build the new one up. So, I'm going seat and reseat a cpu tommorow. Normally apply a small amount of the Artic 5 paste onto the cpu and then spread it around with a butter knife or worse my finger. Theres probably a better way, any suggestions?
