Minimalist Glowforge Easter Basket Tags

These minimalist Glowforge Easter Basket Tags are adorable and super easy to make!

I downloaded the file from Creative Fabrica (which is my absolute favorite place to grab SVGs) and it’s a cinch to turn it into these adorable tags!

Materials

  • Bunny and Egg File – Helpfully, both the bunny and egg I used in these tags were from the same download.
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Wood Glue
  • Twine
  • 1/8″ Baltic Birch Plywood
  • Cutting Machine – I like the xTool M1 (see why here,) and that’s what I used for the project. I have the Glowforge Aura as well, and while I like the xTool better, it and the Spark are both fully capable of making this project as well.

How to Make Minimalist Glowforge Easter Tags

Step 1: Personalize Your File

The thing I love most about xTool is that the software is fairly robust, and therefore minor edits like adding name personalization can be done without using external software.

If you’re using a Glowforge and don’t have premium, you’re going to need to add the names to the eggs in a separate application. Inkscape (free) or Adobe Illustrator are the two common recommendations.

You can add text with Glowforge Premium, but you’re limited to the fonts that are included in the app.

With the xTool, I just add the text in the font I want (this was “Dancing Script,” and then hit “weld.” Voila!

(I know I sound like an xTool ad, but I swear, they’ve never paid me anything. I was just really disappointed with the Glowforge Aura, so I’m very honest about my opinions here.)

At this point, I also put a line right above the butt of the bunny. I only wanted to put the top half on the egg.

If you can easily put a slight curve to your line, that’s probably better. I ended up sanding the corners a bit later so that it matched the curve of the egg.

You also need to add a small circle to each egg for the twine!

Step 2: Print Your File

I used the following xTool settings. I included what I use for 1/8″ plywood on the Glowforge Aura as well.

ToolFunctionPowerSpeedPasses
Glowforge AuraCut10162
Glowforge AuraEngrave7.51001
xTool M1Cut10031
xTool M1Engrave100701

I don’t have the Glowforge Spark, but the settings should be the same as the Aura since they have the same laser.

It took about 10 minutes on the xTool M1 to print three bunnies and three eggs. I’d expect a little longer (maybe 15 minutes) on a Glowforge.

Step 3: Paint and Assemble

Once everything is printed, you’re almost done! Just paint your bunnies, then glue everything together!

I love how these turned out! And they’re so simple to make! Honestly, the hardest part was prepping the file, and even that wasn’t so bad.
