This is one way of doing it.

Attach one variables each to your individual forms.

(ClassView -> Right click form name -> Add -> Add Field)

public static string strFormOne;

public static string strFormTwo;

Then create a click event in the first form(This where you enter your data).

private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
  Form1.strFormOne = textBox1.Text;
  Form2.strFormTwo = Form1.strFormOne;
  MessageBox.Show("Form One " + Form1.strFormOne);
  MessageBox.Show("Form Twee " + Form2.strFormTwo);
  Form2 frm = new Form2();

This part you can put in an load statement or in a click event.

private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    label1.Text = Form2.strFormTwo;
    MessageBox.Show("Inside Form Twee " + Form2.strFormTwo);

I did test the code(built this one quickly) so it should work.

As I said this is one way of doing it, if you find a better way, let me know.

Good luck
