Default Contact Paper and Cricut?

I just got a cricut and I have some white contact paper. Will it work? I don't have any vinyl right now.

LOL and a nice blog post - Kathy's Craft Spot: Alternative to Cricut Vinyl--Contact Paper!

From what I have found it is comparable but the glue may be permanent on walls,

just to let u know to set your pressure and speed both on 3 as that way it wont cut all the way thru the contact and you will be able to then peel it off the backing paper. Much easier than having to seperate it from the backing paper being cut with it and then try to peel them apart.
