Does anyone have a design or instructions on how to make these custom name snowflake ornaments?
In Inkscape, you could do this (at least) two ways using path effects - ‘rotate copies’ or ‘pattern along a path’, although it would probably be just as quick to rotate and place the words manually.
Note snowflakes have six branches, not five as your pic shows.
Thanks! Yes, I would want 6 branches… just quickly screen grabbed an example.
Moved to Community Support, since the free files area is for sharing designs you’ve made with others.
There are at least two existing tutorials here as well:
This feels like it would also be a perfect Cuttle project.
That’s what i was thinking too @chris1
I saw this question in another thread and recorded a video so posting here too:
That one had an engrave and then an outline. For the one in your pic, the changes I’d make are:
- Don’t do the Mirror Repeat, just do the Rotational Repeat. And choose 5 for the number of repetitions.
- Make sure to choose a fairly bold font.
- Add some additional shapes: a flourish that’s also Rotational Repeat’ed 5 times, a Circle with M in the center, and a circle on top for hanging it.
Here is another tutorial that slowly walks you through making geometric designs in Cuttle. Skip ahead to 3:35 if you’re not interested in the silicone/rubber material.
Happy to help if you have more questions!
