Decorative "Scroll Look" Stand Up Christmas Tree

Hi there! I wanted to share a stand up tree design that I made recently. I’ve been trolling the forum and impressed by everyone’s talent and willingness to help. I purchased my Pro in June and I have been having fun creating things. So, getting to the tree, I wanted to try to hand draw the artwork on my iPad and then send it to Inkscape and create a vector image of it, I have got to say that I am pretty happy with the way it turned out. Now, when I designed it, I made the inside connectors pretty much from the top to the bottom. The neat thing that I stumbled across was that by having those that way, the tree actually folds flat (for easy storage) while it’s still connected! I have made both larger and smaller trees just by enlarging and shrinking the image so it’s pretty user friendly. I have printed on both wood and acrylic. The only thing that I would recommend is to put something under it (cardboard?) when cutting acrylic as it seemed to burn/scorch in couple spots from grate even using PG acrylic material. I have made both a PDF and Zip file for ease :slight_smile: ENJOY!

OK…I seem to be the only oddball on here about the size of this tree. Since it’s already an SVG, I did what I always do…opened it in Affinity, copy and pasted it into a new 12x20 art board. The thing is huge! Anyone have a clue for me? Going to try the PDF and see what happens with that.
