I try to design a signature one each year. This is my third one. I’m more proud that I made a box to go with it though!
Sweet design! Is that a finished somehow or naturally that pale? Also love the custom box! I’m curious how you did it? I have a lot of things I package and that’s so much nicer than stuffing paper or filler.
It’s the proof grade maple from Glowforge that is already finished. It usually looks a little more warm, but that position I took the photo had a skylight behind so the natural light did make it look more pale. I used a gift box template and adjusted it to fit that ornament. The insert is layered cardboard
Cute ornament … and I love the box! Cardboard is so handy.
I like how you did the two sides and the packaging is very nice!
I’m loving the snowflakes on the acrylic layer!
Great work! Nice ornament and packaging - so professional! How many layers is each ornament?
Thank you! These are three layers!
I love the snowman! Great design.
you know… I would have figured with it being 2020 the snowman would have had a hole melted through him or something.
oh that’s a good idea! I designed this guy back in Feb 2020 though before the year went downhill - who knew how the world would have turned out in Nov 2020
so true in Feb we had ZERO idea of the crapstorm ahead.
Maybe add drops of cleanish bluish resin like he’s melting.
Amazing ! Did you make the box using the glow forge as well?
Yes! It was fun to learn to make this. I’m also working on a envelope box version
Amazing ! How did you get it to score the cardboard instead of cutting through it ? For the folded sides ?
Score is just a lower power cut.
The power is just low enough to mark the material so I know where to fold and make it straight
