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:
This card lets you choose yourself how the flowers are blooming.
You can cut out the flower petals and put them on the tree on the card,
and create a card to suit every occasion.
Let your blossoms bloom in full for celebrations such as graduations or outstanding results,
or have some falling blossom to represent the change of season or a farewell.
Place lots of buds on your tree to symbolize a new start or challenge.
Or new green leaves to show new life or a celebration of youth.
You can create your own blossoming tree for every occasion.
