Last Minute Valentines Day Gift


#1

I’ll post a made on glowforge thread with mine later, but I wanted to get this out there so you still have time to cut one out before the day is done…


#2

That’s very kind of you!


#3

thank you … there is no time better than now to head out and make this gift for my beautiful wife,:sunglasses::glowforge:


#4

Thanks! No :glowforge: yet, but might try it on on my Silhouette. But for the weeding :sunglasses:


#5

Thank you very much!

With the Cricut, I would save my sticky mats when they were the perfect stickiness just for occasions like this. I used to rank them and use my favorites for fiddly jobs like this where it needed to come off in one piece but not be a nightmare while doing so. You needed just the right amount of use on them and they’d settle down just so.


#7

Quite cool. I’ll be ready for next year!


#8

Very pretty! Thanks for sharing! :slightly_smiling_face:


#9

Will utilize your technique, thanks for the heads uo!

Here it is, cut from Joanne’s cheap craft plywood.

With enough planning ahead, you could make two gifts out of this… I managed to pull it out without disturbing the cast offs.

Lay a large sheet of paper masking tape or vinyl transfer tape over the top of the cutouts before you remove them from the grid - picks them all up in correct orientation. Apply spray glue to another sheet and set them down on top of it…let it dry. Remove the masking tape. Boom! Chakalaka! :wink:

Hi – Is the outer layer a cut line that you designed? I have had this happen when the line I want to cut is too thick (say 2 or 3 pt) and so the GF software sees it as an etch. I always make sure that my cut line is not only red but also only 0.019 pt thick. Does this help?

It looks like an engrave because I gave it a fill when I uploaded it. It’s hard to see the design as outlines only, sorry. Just select convert to cut and it works just fine.
