My principal would like to put sight words down the Kinder-First grade hallway. I have not used vinyl before on my Cricut and have questions.
1. What vinyl should I use to create a quality look and yet is economical for this project?
2. Is there a way to not have to type each word...I started to research this awhile back and wasn't sure? Connecting to the computer...etc. I don't use my Cricut as often as I'd like and am not as versed in these things :).
3. Any other tips you have for this project?

Thank you!

I have only used vinyl once a few days ago to put names on my canisters. I used the Provo Craft Vinyl BUT had read several posts to go to places like Amazon.com to find Vinyl a whole lot cheaper. You can do a simple search for "3 mil prepositional vinyl" and check some sites for their prices.

You only get 2 sheets of vinyl that fit a 12" X 24" mat from (Cricut) Provo Craft...
If you order elsewhere, you may have to cut the vinyl to size your mat, and be sure it's repositionable (some are permanent).

You would want to type the word out because using vinyl you need to pull away all but the letters, apply the transfer tape to the words (which makes them reversed, so you can keep them properly aligned when applying to the wall.

I question why make them in vinyl? A laminated cardstock word would work well and be more cost efficient. I made my daughter some Sesame Characters, each holding Punctuation Signs, that were laminated. She put some double sided tape on them and stuck them on the wall and there they stayed until the end of the school year when she simply pulled them off and packed them away for the summer.
