These are recent yearly projects for a local robotics team. This year I used the GF to score Siser Easyweed HTV (white-laser safe) to speed up the shirts. My craft cutter was just destroying it and I had so many to do that the GF was the cleanest and fastest choice. I used the settings I found here on the forum.
I also engrave legos every year to make the name tags. I mask them, then hit them with a coat of spray paint. The GF is also used to make the lego jig I created specifically to engrave the legos accurately.
Daughter had a birthday party to attend where the birthday girl is a huge Elvis fan. Figured this was the perfect excuse to play with making a faux record clock. This is cut from proofgrade medium black acrylic and the proofgrade frosted acrylic. I used Weld-on 4 to bond the layers together, and unfortunately I bought the wrong sized clock movements (first time putting a clock together), so I had to run down to Michaels and get the right size.
The center label was printed on sticker paper and then hand cut (I could’ve used my Silhouette but I was trying to use a small piece of scrap paper and didn’t have room if I was printing registration marks).
This monstrosity has been bouncing around in my head for a while. Just thought I’d share because it’s finally done and over with. I’m covered in paint that I can’t get off. If anyone is curious about the bow, it’s a piece of scrap fabric from my hoard that I ripped a strip off of. It says “Motherhood: If you’re not exhausted, you’re not doing it right.”
Now to tackle my backlog of projects…
