I got hooked on creating mandala designs based on spirograph type images - and then I expanded from there.
I spent a couple of weeks creating all kinds of designs, cutting them and experimenting with them. I took four different ones and framed them in Michael's Benton 9x9" shadow box frames (they were on sale at 60% plus 15% off!) to hang on my craft room wall.
Some of the designs are a single star pattern made of 3 layers, others are more complicated. One is two layers of stars each made up of 5 layers of card stock in different colors.

Once you start cutting these open your creative mind and think of other applications. Here are two possible uses for the same files - even consider vinyl!
And I have added a freebie to my freebie page. Go here if you want to test your machines file compatibility or skill at cutting fine lines.
