Hi all! I got my Glowforge a few weeks ago and decided that the best way to get comfortable with designing on my own and cutting new materials was to just jump in with projects for myself. I love going through the posts on here to see what everyone is making so I thought I would share too. Here are my first projects for my daughter’s first birthday. We did a lemonade stand theme. Friends could drive by to wave and get some lemonade or stay and play at the dramatic play lemonade stand. It was a lot of fun!
Sign for the lemonade stand and the “ONE” decorated her high chair for the cake smash.
I worked with felt to cut out these intricate lemon pieces for the little aprons. These were a huge hit.
I cut out all the pattern pieces for the little play lemons. This was such a huge time saver! Plus I got really comfortable with testing settings. It was a win-win. My final settings left just a few strands attached so I could pop them out when I needed them.
Here she is in front of the lemonade stand. You can see a tiny peek of the menu I engraved and painted in the back. That piece didn’t turn out quite how I wanted so I don’t have good pictures of it, haha.
Thank you all for indulging me! I’m so glad to be a part of this community after months of dreaming and saving. It’s a dream come true!
