I hope this is okay, because I took some inspiration from @cynd11 and her mini-clock. I thought it would be cool to make a mantle sized one, and then I decided to try stained glass with different colors acrylic, with a cheap LED light base underneath. Here is the result, and I am so happy with it! I’m giving it to my mom, cannot wait! Thanks to @Jules for the kerf tutorial, it was great! Although it was odd, some of the purple (yes those are purple, not blue) pieces fit, others didn’t. I think there are three different kerf values in there that ended up working. Anyway, thanks again forum peeps! Y’all are the best!
Oh, I would also like to add, recreating that pattern in Inkscape taught me so much. I’m currently thinking of trying to apply it to my gingerbread house this year (and I think it will totally work)
