Cutting Vinyl Print in TVC Stick


I should be getting my new vinyl print and x-acto knife soon and im wonder whats the best way to cut the button holes and Turbo panel

Ive been thinking id like to stick the vinyl on then either cut downwards from the top of the panel using the metal plate as the guide or flip the stick over and cut from inside ?

Also i want to put the button art inside my buttons , I take it if i stick the vinyl to the buton caps and slowly rotate the cap on a cutting mat this should come and nice ?

Whats the best way ? I really dont want to mess this vinyl up it cost over £20 :frowning: , Im quite scared lol
