Decided to share a few of my favorite blogs and sources for free SVG files, for those of you who haven’t gotten into vector design yet, but want to have a few things to use right off the bat. You can open these files in Illustrator, Inkscape or CorelDraw and play with making a few simple modifications to them to get your feet wet.
Lots of the stuff is more oriented to scrapbooking and card creation, but a telephone is a telephone either way, and there’s a lot of stuff to look through. (By the time you get done looking and downloading - your machine will probably be here, and it’s a fun way to kill some time.)
So without further ado, and in no particular order, I give you:
The Dreaming Tree
The Free SVGs Blog
Monica’s Creative Corner
Tara’s Craft Studio
This one is not actually an SVG site, but scherenschnitte, (the art of detailed papercutting), is something that will lend itself very well to laser, and there are a lot of patterns here that we can use.
Mirkwood Designs Box Templates
Again, these are not SVG format, but easily traced and super handy for knocking out last minute gift boxes.
That’s probably enough to get a good start - there are many many more - just depends on how much time you want to spend looking.
(And I’ll make this a Wiki in case someone else has a nice source they’d like to add.)

A variety of brand and product logos in SVG that might come in handy for something:
