A few questions since my Cricut is on its way!

How do you attach the letters cut from the cricut? Tape? Glue? What seems to work best? Does it depend on size?

How do you cut the corners of pictures/mattes so that the edges are rounded? I'm assuming there's a tool for it because some people's look so uniform that there's no way they're freehand! (I don't think!)

Darn, I knew I had 3 but I forget the 3rd question right now

I use my tape runner to adhere the letters to my page. I do have a Xyron sticker maker and I am going to try that next time to see how that goes.

I have a Creative Memory Corner Maker. It is $8.50 on their website. I bought mine on ebay with a couple of other shape punches.

I usually just use a glue stick to stick down my letters. To round my corners, I am too cheap to buy a special tool! haha..I usually place something round like a cup or a roll of tape right on the corner and just trace around it! It's all about what works best for you!

I haven't used my Cricut in awhile but when I do I just use my CTMH glue pen/marker.
For rounded corners I use a corner rounder I bought at Walmart for a couple dollars.

I use a gluestick. I need to invest in something better, because I usually end up with clue all over my fingers...*sigh* I LIKE the sticker maker idea!

I use the Zig 2 way Glue. It's the best! I also use Sakura's Quickie glue for smaller letters.
