Well I would find something small like a harspray cap, bottle-top, etc. and trace it with pencil and cut them by hand.

Probably not the answer you wanted but that’s how I would do it! I’m an art teacher, and have many years experience cutting circles! I hope it works out for you!

You should be able to buy them, like a pre made one that you punch out after you run it through your printer.  I saw them at Michaels when I went and picked up my lace cards.

Could you print it onto circular labels, then buy pre-cut circles at a craft store of the same size, and adhere the circular labels to the pre-cut circles?  (If that makes any sense at all..!)

@swedeypie:  or you could go to an office supply store and get labels. We forgot to tell people that we couldn’t take any gifts with us due to living in a different state than the wedding so we ordered labels for like a dollar (got 86 if them) and stuck them on the bottom of each envolope.

Oooh, or could you print them on sticky labels and use that to “seal” the envelopes??

I would do a “cheat sheet” on the cricut, and lay it out on your computer. Using publisher or something. The cricut should be the exact same cut every time as long as the settings are the same.

@swedeypie:  Yeah, I think they were like gift tag labels or something, but they were on a standard 8X11 piece of card stock that you put in your printer, printed on them and then just punched out the circle.  You might have to get a hole punch to make it is full tag, I don’t remember that part.   If that does not work, you can but a big round hole punch and kinda just print on a normal piece of paper and use the big hole punch to get the look as well.
