I found these great little tin boxes on Pick Your Plum, but any similar box would work.  Available space on each front was 5" x 5.5"

Using speed 8, thickness 9, and blade setting 2, I attached my MACal8900 Pro vinyl to a 12x12 cutting mat.  Adjust rollers to the smallest setting. Use the "load mat" setting, not "load media!"

I just eyeballed the letter positions, but feel free to measure.  I will next time, since mine aren't exactly perfectly centered.  Use the side of a credit card to scrape out any air bubbles.

See those air bubbles? No matter how careful I am, I always end up with some.  If you're unable to push them out, poke a TINY pinhole in the middle and press the air toward the hole to flatten.
