Oak Leaf Wine Glass Place Card


I'm smitten with place cards that hang from your glass. Are these name cards new? I've just noticed them used them as wedding place cards. Maybe I'm the wrong demographic--long past my own wedding and not yet to kids' weddings.)

Even though I used an already-drawn swirl file from Ars Grafik, and my already-drawn oak leaf file, this took a surprisingly long time to work out.

How to make the wine glass place card

Download cutting file DXF or SVG or PDF and machine cut.

Fold in half on the score line and slip each half onto the rim of your glass.

What this chart does show is that some machines can only cut off cartridges or proprietary software. *I* would only want a machine that can cut ANYTHING I design, in a standard program like Adobe Illustrator or CorelDraw or Inkscape.

Thank you so much for the help Carol :)
I have been looking around and I'm going to go for the Silhouette Cameo!! I am totally sold by their videos. Think it does everything I was hoping for.
