Why settle for typical presents like sweets or flowers when you can give them something that will remind them of you every day? We took a simple (and inexpensive) mirror from IKEA named MALMA and enhanced it with a personalised engraving. Words of love, understanding, encouragement or motivation will surround your loved ones when they look in it, reminding them that they are always thought of.
Mirror MALMA from IKEA or any other mirror with a wooden frame
Trotec laser machine used:
- Speedy 100
- 40 watts
- 2.0 inch lens
For our sample, we used a love poem, but you can also use motivational sayings, quotes, personal anecdotes or let your inner-bard loose and write your own prose! Simply enter the text in the CorelDraw template and, if necessary, adjust the font size.
Send the file to the laser. We have used a Speedy 100 with 40 watts laser power and the following parameters:
Power: 30% - Speed: 70% - Frequency: 500 ppi - Air Assist: ON
Clean the mirror, wrap it and give it to the lucky recipient.
- Glue a ribbon onto the back of the mirror to be able to hang it up
with a big bow.
- Engrave motivational words to encourage someone to keep reaching
for their goals.
- This idea can also be used for other occasions such as birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, weddings, and many more.
