I love the look of these word stickers: Jillibean Soup Wise Word Stickers

Any ideas for how to get that look without a Silhouette?

Without an electronic diecutting machine, I would imagine you could only write it out and cut it out yourself.....but I would rather spend the .99 and buy them than spend the time fussy cutting....

You can do it in Illustrator using Pathfinder.

Unless U already have Illustrator, it would be much cheaper to invest in a Cameo.

I own a Cameo,Cricut, Slice AND a Cuttlebug but I would pay the 99c in a flash! They are cute.
Thanks for pointing them out, they are now on my wishlist.

I did it when I started on my wedding album before I got a machine. (And the font I chose is too fine to do it now (it messes up), so I STILL have to cut by hand!)

I used Word and printed in mirror image so I could print on the back side of the paper (obviously this isn't going to work for very dark paper) and then cut it out by hand.

You can print a mirror image and use a craft knife to cut them out.
I've been doing that for years.
I finally hit a cameo and still have to because I don't know how to use my cameo very well yet
