Watch Me Make this Glowforge Project Lemon Tags for Farmhouse Bead Garland
Our newest product int he shop are these tags that you can cut from your Glowforge and put on the ends of your bead garlands to hang on your trays or other areas of your home. They also make great grab and go items at craft shows, or to sell in your Etsy shops. Yes, our files are commercial use okay!
This set of farmhouse tags for bead garlands easy to create with your Glowforge or any laser cutter or CNC machine.
How My Lemon Tags for Farmhouse Bead Garlands Turned Out
For info on how I mask my wood, and more on magnets, check out my Lemon Banner tutorial.
- I didn’t film the entire cutting process, but if you go back to my other lemon videos you can learn a lot.
- My machine was really starting to cut off place. I need to calibrate. To calibrate your Glowforge check out this post.
You can see the little lemon I cut from this file set at the top. Even if you don’t use them as tassel tags you can still put them on your tray like I did!
My beads are so fun and I love that I can change out the tags for other themes!
Products Used in Lemon Tags for Farmhouse Bead Garlands With the Glowforge
- Lemon Farmhouse Tiered Tray Mini Signs cut files in our shop.
- Adobe Illustrator – You don’t need this, but if you want more control over your vector files I recommend it. Some people use other apps for vector use (Affinity is one some people like)
- Glowforge – I use the Pro model, for a discount, use this link to get up to $500 off your Glowforge when you purchase through it*
- 1/4″ Baltic Birch. I purchase mine from this guy. If they don’t have in stock shoot him a message and ask when. He’s so great at communicating!
- TransferRite Ultra 582U Medium Tact (I didn’t show this in the video, watch our Lemon banner video to see how)
- Magnets* to hold the Birch flat down on the crumb tray
- Spray Paint Colors by Krylon ColorMaxx (primer + paint): Satin Meringue, Satin Pistachio, Matte Black, Satin White
- Stick Fast CA Thick*
- Denatured Alcohol for cleaning (I’m not sure you can buy this in California though so you are better off buying online). Mine is by Crown (and found at Home Depot in the cleaning section).
- Wood Beads*
- Lobster Claws and Jump Rings – Hobby stores, like Michaels, Hobby Lobby, or JoAnn. Even some on Amazon.
Links marked with an asterisk* are affiliate links. I get some sort of payment when you use them. Use them, or don’t. It’s up to you!
