Material Info
This project paper was used with some wood and a printer. The paper is just regular copy paper found in any supply store and the wood is 1/8" basswood from xTool.com. The rotating musical base was also from xTool.com but I am not sure it is still available.

Step 2) With this project a simple hearts pattern is used. This patter gets cut out from the white paper using the S1 20w. Settings for this are as easy as cutting most other items. The second item needed in the design is a rectangle the exact size of the patterned hearts. This rectangle acts as both the overall size of the white paper and also the red printed paper.

Step 3) with knowing the dia. of the rotating base the size of the paper is calculated once this is figured out the dia. of a circle is made to fit within the tube the paper will create once rolled around the base. To create a lid for the lighted heart base a larger circle is also created a bit larger that the first circle. These circles are made from wood so it is easy to engrave words and a heart on the top to act as a lid. This lid also holds the Micro LED light so the newly created tube of hearts will light up

Step 4) With this step all the settings for the paper are adjusted, these settings are only score as the score feature cuts copy paper perfectly without burning more than it needs. Once the pieces are scored/cut out the glue stick is rubbed all over the back side of each piece of paper so they stick together. Once this is finished more glue stick is added around the musical base and the paper is wrapped around to created a tube.
