How awesome is that!! All the work has been done for you, so you can just have fun putting it together! You can however customize them. After you choose the project before clicking make it. Choose the button right next to it that says customize.

The Project will then open on your Design Space Canvas. You now can Customize the Colors and sayings if your choose.

I customized toppers to be for the 2 teams that would be playing for my party. Since the program will categorize the images into colors for printing, I made the “Go team” and the “Cheer” in Grey. I wanted them to be on white vinyl not white cardstock like the #1 finger.

Click, Make It and follow the instructions for changing out mats for cutting. Follow the Assembly instructions on the Make It Now instruction sheet.
