Two Part Bunny Earrings

 Welcome back!  It's March 29th and I should be doing my taxes but this earring idea has been kicking around in my head.  I have gone through about a hundred prototypes but I finally came up with a layered bunny earring that turned out pretty stinking cute!  These are a little work and need a little patience so I'm offering them as a free file.  Here's what I came up with

And here's how it works.  Dowload the free file (below) and load it into the Glowforge UI.  There are several layers and here's the key: 


I used whiteboard for these and masked them prior to cutting.  I always score with a higher power to get a deeper score and to help the paint stay in the lines.  I then removed the masking from the inner ears and toe beans and painted those parts pink with a Posca marker.  After it dries I remove all the masking and assemble them by gluing the head and feet on the body. As designed they are about 1.5" x 1" and they take about 1.5 minutes to engrave and cut per pair.  I hope you think they are as cute as I do!

Thank you for visiting and let me know what you think!
