DIY Star Wars Snowflakes

DIY Star Wars Snowflakes
With winter upon us, we thought it would be fun to share a fun project of ours with you: snowflake designs with a Star Wars twist. We created the original set of designs in 2010 and now have the largest collection of designs and templates on the internet. With The Force Awakens opening in December, the latest installment of the Star Wars film series inspired us to create new designs such as the BB-8 and Kylo Ren. We had so much fun in fact that there are 33 designs altogether. Download the Collection. Please share these on your networks using the hashtag #starwarssnowflakes and our handle @mattersofgrey. If you like Star Wars stuff, you might enjoy our Star Wars ringtones as well.

10 Tips and Tricks for Laser Engraving and Cutting Hello, I'm Geordie and I currently work at ADX Portland running the Laser Cutter and Engraver. My job is to take in customer's projects, set them up and run them on the laser. As a result, I've learned a few tricks for how to set up jobs to get the best results, and in this Instructable I'm going to pass them on to you. The laser I work with is an Epilog Helix and the program we use to run it is Corel Draw. I'm going to try to write in general terms so you can use what ever laser and program you want to. Note: For several of these tips it is important to understand the difference between Vector files and Bitmap files.

Boy Birthday Party Ideas and Supplies There’s a Christmas carol Bing Crosby recorded that says, “Christmas is a coming…I don’t need to worry, and I don’t need to fret, and the more you give at Christmastime the more you get!” Sounds great, huh? Unless you’re the one who wants to give more and the budget says no. Then it can be hard not to fret. But you can still give.

Recycled Christmas Card Ornaments I don’t know about you but I receive a lot of Christmas cards in the mail. Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE receiving them, especially the ones with the family photos. Origami Fortune Teller Instructions - Make an Origami Fortune Teller I learned to fold this origami fortune teller as a kid. I remember having lots of fun playing it with my siblings and friends. I had forgotten all about it but there was an ER episode not too long ago where a kid in the show refreshed my memory of this childhood game. It's also used in the opening credits of Community, a tv series. Made this origami?

MakerCase - Easy Laser Cut Case Design MakerCase is a web-based application for designing laser-cut project cases. Makercase runs in a web browser and automatically generates a blueprint for laser cutting based on the users specifications. The user enters the desired case dimensions and material thickness, and MakerCase automatically generates a three-dimensional model of the case that can be freely rotated. MakerCase lets users create cases with flat edges or interlocking edges using finger joints or t-slots for retaining nuts and bolts.

Reader Question: How Do You Cut Your Snowflakes? You sometimes have questions. I know I do. When this happens and you think I might be of some service, do as Bridgitt did and shoot me an email. You never know, I just might be able to help. DIY Paper Christmas Ornaments When I made my paper pumpkins for fall a few weeks ago I really didn’t think they’d be shared thousands and thousands of times! After a few emails and some comments and questions from Girl Scout Leaders and Teachers, I thought I’d try a similar craft for the holidays. So, after a few trials, I perfected these DIY paper Christmas ornaments, which were inspired by the paper pumpkins. I took the time and played around with width, length, and paper type. Finally, I think I found the right DIY formula. I ended up liking the metallic scrapbook paper the best.
