I have been intending to put Devon's name on her door at the new place for a few months now. I even bought some really neat vinyl at TJ. Maxx (contact paper) for $4.50 for 2 rolls! The plan was to cut it with my cricut and then install it on the door. However, I didn't have any transfer tape. I hate buying cricut brand supplies because the price is outrageous so I researched alternatives. Apparantly you can use clear contact paper (which I purchased from Wal-mart for $5/roll) and used that. Her name cut like a dream. Once I had isolated the letters, I cut a piece of clear vinyl a little bigger than her name and placed it sticky side down on the name and pressed hard to get good contact. Then I flipped it and pulled the backing off. I was left with the clear contact paper with Devon's name backward on it. Then I lined it up on her door and pressed. You want to make sure you use a credit card or hard squeegie for this. You want the letters to really adhere to the surface so you can pull the contact paper away without the letters coming too.
She loves her name on the door! Once #2 is born and ready to move it with her big sister, I will add her name as well. I am tossing around the idea of labeling the bathroom downstairs for guests....hmmm
