I bought plain Can Hugs at Michaels for $.66 each and jazzed them up with vinyl.
I decided to use some cartridges that I have not used yet. Now, be nice....I would have used them sooner if my Gypsy were back!! I used Cricut Lite Cherry Limeade for the font. I cut out the letters at 2". I made a kiss cut with my settings at 3, 3 & 3. That is: meduim speed, medium pressure and the blade set on 3. This cuts only the vinyl, not the backing.
I use my dental tool to weed away the extra vinyl. If you roll it up as you weed, you won't accidentally stick the extra pieces to the letters (don't ask how I know that!!).
