move db from sql 2012 to 2008r2

I need to move a database that is currently on sql 2012 to 2008r2. Has anyone done this? If so, what steps did you follow? Did you just script it out?
Thank you in advance!

you cannot go backward, the best way is to export the data or generate the schema and data scripts on sql 20112 and run them against a database in 2008

Right click the database, go to "Tasks" and try either the Import/Export tools or even better yet the "Database Copy" task (although this requires SSIS).
