So… my makerspace referred an artist to me to help with a project for the city. They told me 400 17" inch cardstock circles with the understanding that they would need to be folded in half. I figured I could pin them well with magnets and half-circles would be quick to cut.
What she actually wants is 500 snowflakes on 65# cardstock in 3 sizes - 10", 14" & 17" (all would need to be folded).
I haven’t seen the files yet, but I can’t imagine trying to cut one snowflake out of folded paper without little bits flying everywhere, never mind 500. I know some people have had luck with engraving paper instead of cutting, but for 500 of them, I don’t even want to imagine how long that will take.
Before I call and suggest she find someone with a bigger/faster laser or a digital cutting machine of some other sort, does anyone have any creative suggestions for making this work?
