Here's the deal and some things to think about....the original CAMEO has a plastic-y cover sheet that holds the custom control panel shape in place so you can cut it on paper for super easy removing and swapping as your mood of the season changes.
The CAMEO 2, because it does not have any buttons, does not include this same protective cover. That means whatever you cut the CAMEO 2 control panel shape on will have to have some kind of adhesive on the back to stick to your actual machine. Consider this your fair warning!
If you choose to use vinyl, I would HIGHLY suggest you use indoor/removable/631 vinyl for this so you can remove it without leaving any adhesive behind. Other options that I would suggest you test first to make sure no adhesive is left behind.
- Fill the shape with a pattern, then print and cut on sticker paper (right above)
- Cut on patterned cardstock and run through a xyron
- Cut Washi sheets (left above)
- Use the Bling N Thing rhinestone material and bling out your machine by turning the template into a rhinestone decal
The most important thing to remember however is NOT to re-size the control panel shape - it's perfectly sized to fit the CAMEO 2 - so just open, cut, apply.
