If you have already bought your primers and you don't want to buy new ones
then just clone your fragment you applified into another vector first (TA cloning vector, what ever)
and then cut with your enzymes.

If you haven't bought primers yet then give yourself ample room... like 5 to 8 bp's
just to be sure
