Simple Fire Piston
You can import the digital image (modified in gimp) into the cricut application, and print/cut it out as a stencil with the cricut machine on the tape the way you did with your text stencil. I've done it a few times before, creating stencils from images. I didn't use tape the way you did (which is actually a great and inexpensive idea, thanks btw!) - at the time I used the cricut adhesive vinyl. The image option works great to make stencils for hard-to-reproduce fonts, or even things like a cameo or other simple line drawing.
Beautiful project! One thing I would recommend for the Cricut stencil for anyone else looking to build their own or for the author in the future - you can actually get a digital image (even a photograph) of the logo you're looking to replicate, and in an image editing tool (gimp is a well-known free tool) you can readily modify it (strip down to a single color, flatten/smooth edges, etc) to be used as a simple stencil. It helps with even more stylized text and sounds like it would save time and complexity while even more faithfully replicating a logo.
You always inspire me - thanks for sharing this instructable. Your projects, writing, and sense of humor are just brilliant. I wish I could joke and pun half as well as you in my 3rd language, please do keep up the excellent work!
