Best Laser Crafts for Christmas
If you are a crafter, the holidays are GO TIME. Between gifts, decorations, and products to sell, Christmas is usually the busiest time of year. Are you busy making Cricut crafts? I think you should check out what you can do with a desktop laser machine for crafts!
Laser crafts can be a fun and creative way to add a modern touch to your holiday decorations and gifts. A laser cutter uses a high-powered laser beam to cut and engrave precise designs into various materials such as wood, acrylic, cardboard, paper, leather, and more!
With a laser cutter, the possibilities of the crafts you can make are endless. Plus, you can create intricate and detailed designs that would be difficult or impossible to achieve by hand or even with a Cricut Machine.
The xTool M1 is a desktop hybrid laser and blade crafting machine. It offers laser engraving and cutting (similar to the Glowforge) as well as blade cutting (similar to a Cricut Maker or Explore series machine). It’s a pretty cool machine, and you should read my full review if you’re interested in buying one.
Christmas Crafts You Can Make with a xTool
I am going to share my favorite ideas for laser cut or engraved Christmas crafts that you can make with an xTool.
If you’re looking for Christmas crafts you can make with an xTool M1, keep in mind that the 10W M1 laser can cut (in one pass!) a variety of materials including wood (up to 8mm thick) and acrylic (up to 3mm) but the 5W M1 can only cut up to 4mm thick basswood.
