I borrowed @pubultrastar’s 3-ring neck modification and altered the squarish design from Thingiverse to make it a bit more curvy and pleasing to my eyes, then cropped down a free coloring page design to etch on.
Pro tip: If you use the included floral design, don’t use PG HD engrave settings; it takes 'WAY too long. I haven’t done a second one yet, but I’ll definitely be playing with the settings next time to speed things up a bit.
This one is made from PG medium draftboard. I was kind of pooped out after my first week back to work after ankle surgery, and the coloring page design called to me, so I grabbed a gold oil marker (for the edges) and a gold gel pen (for the etching) and did some therapeutic coloring before assembling.
I didn’t plan it around a test tube as in the original pattern, so it will need some glue to hold it together. If you want to populate it with some wooden flowers, there are a couple of ring-shaped cutouts in the pattern that can be glued in strategically to keep the stems from sliding out between the “fins” of the vase.

EDIT: I used some of my “sit around recovering from surgery” time to vectorize the floral pattern. This is entirely untested. It’s full of unclosed vector shapes, so it’s basically a score-only design. If you try it before I do, let me know how it works!
