Faux fossil pet rock

Need a quick last minute present?
Do you need an inexpensive present for the office gift exchange?
Did someone come to for the holidays for which you don´t have a gift?
Do you need a present for that hard to please family member who already has everything?
How about that Jurassic park fan or avid paleontology nerd in the family?
Maybe you just need to get by for the “Secret” gift exchange?

No problem, I present to you the original pet rock.
Just run to your nearest Hobby Lobby and grab a bag of Mosaic Accents natural pebble sliced rocks in black and with your trusty :glowforge: you are good to go. There are plenty of interesting fosil images in google to choose from

On the reverse I engraved “Stolen from the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History”.

These are awesome. I think I have some flat stone tiles that would be a good match. My nephew would love these…

Those look really cool! My son would have loved these when he was a kid. Probably still would.

Tried it on slate with poor results.
The black river rock slices worked perfectly.

its awesome what the glowforge can do. i grabbed flat river rocks at my rv resort and have a neighbor who is a farmer so i made up 2 dozen farm related pet rocks for him and his family. your idea is right on also.

I must be overworked. It took me a while but last night out of the blue it clicked.

I see what you did T-Cup T-Rex. :rofl:
