    They make laser cutters that can cut paper, but they are quite expensive. Personally, I would use an Exacto knife, though you should have an adult help you. They have open blades and are extremely sharp, so I wouldn't recommend doing it by yourself. They are cheap and you can find them just about anywhere (at least in the U.S.). They look like this:

    They are very handy for cutting out shapes from paper :D

    Yes. It is very sharp and the tip is very small. It will be easy to cut out small letters very easily. But please have your mom or dad help you, just to be on the safe side ;)

    Something I do when I need a custom label is use carpet tape, which is double sided. The stuff simply will not let go. Put it on the back of a custom print out and you are good to go.

    The downside is carpet tape is tough, it does not cut easily.

    Dude sticker printing is so so so cheap right now its cheaper just to have it done and cut, then try to do it yourself. The cost in materials will be about the cost of having them professionally done. I've made lots of em. There stupid cheap.

    I don't know about making cartidges yourself, but the device is hackable so you can cut any shapes you want.

    If you're going down the knife route, make sure it is as sharp as possible.

    A blunt knife is a dangerous knife...

    And use a thick cutting board! Mom is not going to be happy if a counter or table top suffers because of this.
