Item descriptionYou Fab 2013
You Fab is a laser cutter design contest conducted by FabCafe and Loftwork. For the second You Fab contest held in 2013, we called for design ideas based on the three design categories of A: Toys, B: Greeting Cards, and C: Party Outfits and Accessories, and we received many unique designs from all over the world.
Explanation of works:
Somewhere along the lines we started giving book gift cards instead of the old-style gift vouchers for books. Even though the shape and form has changed, the sender’s intentions remain unchanged. They want the recipient to read many books and be taken to many enchanting places as they read. I think sending a gift like that in a paper packet is boring, and so I designed these card cases.
Behind the bookshelf is a little girl and a white bear. When you open the card, there is a book gift card behind the bookshelf with a place to put a message.
How to make it:
▼What you will need:
●Laser cutter data (You can download this from the link below)
●Two sheets of A4 reversible paper in colors of your choice
▼How to fabricate and construct it:
1. Based on the laser cutter data that you downloaded, use the laser cutter to cut out and engrave the paper of your choice.
※When using the laser cutter, please use the following guide for the various lines shown on the data.
(Red lines=cut; Green paint=engraved)
※The strength setting of the laser depends on the type of paper used. Test the settings using the edges of the paper to find the correct setting for your paper.
2. Stick the 2 cut pieces of paper together with either glue or masking tape.
