Thanks so much! I am a newbie. I’m almost embarrassed to say that I resized this smaller the first time I cut it–to save wood. I’m sure you can guess what happened! The notches were too small. Never one to waste anything, I cut off the tabs and used glue all around. On my second attempt, I added some text.

We have all made mistakes that after the fact seem really silly, but you learned from it, and that makes it worth making! Welcome to the community. We have fun here :smiley:

Thank you for the beautiful design. I just made 2 from PG Maple for my daughter and daughter in law. It fit quite snugly (had to persuade the bottom piece and baby Jesus with a small rubber mallet.

Thanks for the design all, and oblige me with a perhaps beginner question… what do the numbers after the steps mean - e.g. #297200, #548ab2, etc? Planning to put this on top of a cake!
Thanks!

Those are the Inkscape colors. You can ignore that.

Great question! Those are the RBG color values in hexadecimal format, used in SVG files and all image editors (Illustrator, Affinity Designer, Inkscape, Photoshop, GIMP, etc.) that are used to create web content.
