Laser Cut a paper Christmas card Trotec lasers

Laser Cut a Paper Christmas Card

Surprise your family and friends with your personal Christmas card cut with the laser. All you need for this is paper in two colors.
Required material:
§  Paper approx. 200 g fir-tree green
§  Paper approx. 200 g white
§  Paper glue
 
Suitable machines: Speedy 100, Speedy 300, Speedy 500

Trotec laser used: Speedy 300, 60 watt, 1.5 inch lens

Step 1
This sample is made from two materials. We start by engraving and cutting the green paper, and then the white paper. If you like, you can add your personal inscription. We have used the following laser parameters:
§  Grid engraving: power: 15 %, speed: 70 %, resolution: 500 dpi/500 ppi
§  Vector marking – scoring: power:10 %, speed: 8 %, resolution: 500 dpi/10000 Hz
§  Vector cut – cutting through: power: 15 %, speed: 2 %, resolution: 500 dpi/8000 Hz

Step 2  
Once you have cut both paper sorts to size, first fold the green paper along its center folding line so that the engraving is on the inside. After that, open it again and fold it along the other folding lines (marked red in the file). You will thus obtain a three-dimensional object.  


Step 3 

Next, apply glue thinly to the back side of the green paper and glue it to the white paper. Leave the card folded open until the glue has dried completely.

  1. You always come up with the most beautiful crafts. I surprised my mom with a fairly close version of this pop-out Christmas tree. I hope that my company will upgrade its laser cutters. I would love to be able to pump out higher quality crafts that are more similar in quality to yours. Kudos though, your work inspires me. http://www.hygradelaser.com.au/laser_cutting.html
