1

Cut ornament

Click the “Open in Easel” button near the top of the page to get ready to cut the snowflake on your Shapeoko. My piece of birch veneer was 0.1" thick and I used a 1/32" bit, so these are the default settings. Click “Carve”, then watch the holiday magic happen.

2

Paint and sparkle-ify

You can choose to leave your owl birch-colored, or you can paint it. With a really tiny brush. I also chose to glue a rhinestone on his hat.

3

Bling out your Christmas tree

Loop a piece of string or cord through the hole in the top of the ornament, then hang it from your tree.
