Christmas ornaments my wife requested

My wife has “redirected” my :glowforge: time to making ornaments to give out this year.

I have also been making “Baby Yoda/The Child/Grogu” ornaments, but I have handed them all out. So, I will have to make some more.

Yep. I was inspired by designs I have seen here and on the internet.

My wife told me what she wanted the ornament to look like, and I did my best to design it. Then we put a message on the card.

I plan to glue cardstock on the back, so the ornament will lay into the card.

I tried a new trick to getting the masking off that I read about on here a lot. I used Duck Tape! It work so incredibly well, I really should have been doing this from the beginning!

If you are still weeding tiny pieces by hand, STOP and get some Duck Tape! It made the work so much easier and faster! (Huge thanks to the community for that tip!)

I tried doing the engraves without masking, but then I had to do a lot of cleaning for it to look good. So went back to masking, and it was such a task, but the finished product looked great. Now I have the look and the ease of process, perfect combination.

I bought the one from premium, but I cannot change the family name in the GF app. How did you do that?

Open the design. Click the three dots. Click Design Details. Click "Before you start inthe instructions regarding text

are there.

Here are some of the “Baby Yoda” ornaments I have been making too.

I should have added my :glowforge: code to them (hindsight being 20/20). Been handing out quite a few of these and people love them.

(They are made from the scraps of the other ornaments.)
