Christmas Snowflakes

The maker space I am apart of is having a ornament exchange. The first thing that popped in my head was a 3d snow flake made with the laser cutter. I started looking around the internet and couldn’t find a good template or svg someone else had already made. I ended up tracing part of a paper template into inkscape and playing around with the space for sliding one piece inside another. It only took two tries to get it right. The squeeze is pretty tight but not impossible.

I want to share my file so that others can do this also. They make great gifts to friends and family. I found that spray paint and clear coat helps keep the edge burn from coming off.

I tried uploading the svg but word press doesn’t want to take it. :/ oh well.
