I cut the soda using my cricut and the Nifty Fifties cartridge.  I had to free-hand cut both backgrounds.  The "Jett's Drinks" was done using Sure Cuts A Lot.  I used sheets of duct tape except for the black; it's an old roll of black marble contact paper.  I kinda went about this backwards.  If I had to do it again, I do it bet…
