I Mustache You (Valentine's Day Cards)

I was planning on getting these designs finalized for listing on my Etsy shop… but I don’t currently have access to my Glowforge :cry: . My family and I are traveling for the next few months and didn’t have space for the Glowforge.

My plan was to make these out of 1/8" baltic birch - with each card having a pop-out mustache that kids can play with.

I can’t guarantee how they will cut out, as I haven’t tried it yet! If you do make these, I would love to see how they turn out!

This is what the design looks like

These are cute, thanks for the share!


LOL These are great! “Wish you were hair” omg this would be hilarious for a bald friend of mine that always jokes about his hair.


Ha! That would be perfect :laughing:

We wanted to make some fun designs that kids would like to play with as well :man_shrugging:

Jeffrey Dahmer would absolutely pick the first card. Double-entendre bonus points throughout its entire message. :+1: :clap:

Back to the meat of this topic, is the cut-out a continuous line? Might be helpful to design a 1-2mm break at the handle bottom and in the gap’s place a bridging line meant to be a score (partial cut). I haven’t had an opportunity to dissect the zip file to examine.

Yes, it is a continuous line. I have a test file I was working on where I had added some tiny connector lines so it didn’t cut all the way out… I wasn’t sure how thick this needed to be so it would hold yet still pop out. I meant to experiment with this, but as I say… My glowforge is not available at the moment.

Maybe there is some information I could find on the forums.

I use 1mm breaks in the line when I’m making flat-pack pop-out things. I usually put 3 or 4 around the pop-out.


Awesome. Thanks for the information! I’ll try this when I get a chance!
