Laser Cut Snowflake Ornaments from Wood, Paper and Foam
This sample club item incorporates different designs and mediums to create a fun and sophisticated snowflake theme for the holidays! Mix and match designs and materials - including wood, glitter craft foam and holiday-inspired cardstock!
All designs can be resized to fit different preferences and materials.
Before you get started, there are a few tips to help complete the project successfully:
For the glitter snowflakes, remove the adhesive from the back of two pieces and stick them together, back to back. You can use the same colors or use two different colors for a two-tone effect.
For the paper snowflakes, adhere two pieces of paper back to back with strips of double-stick tape to ensure the same paper design is visible from all angles of the ornament.
First, determine which snowflake you'd like to create first. Open the appropriate file and send it to the laser with the recommended settings for your system. The glitter ornaments will be the only ones that do not require any further assembly after they've been cut.
After the job is complete, you will have all the necessary pieces to assemble the ornament.
For paper ornaments, remove the components and slide the corresponding pieces together - this makes the snowflakes three dimensional. One side will have a hole for the ornament hook and the other will not, as indicated by the image to the right. These steps can be applied to both the smaller and larger paper ornaments.
