Do you want to propose to your darling with an surprise, maybe our heartpuzzle is right for you :-)

It is an wooden puzzle. you can pull out the red hearts. On the top is an engraved heart with the text "Do you know what I love about you?

Under the red hearts you can read "your eyes", "your mouth", "your hair", "everything"
And under the biggest red heart the final question "Will you marry me?"

Hearts which comes from your heart.

Have fun to create your own

We made our design with inkscape, because for the lasercut you will need vectorgraphic.

Now it is time to start the process. We use a 4mm plywood, then the final puzzle is not too thick.

If you don't have access to an lasercutter you can also use your classic jigsaw.



Step 3: Cut out the hearts

Great job, but the question should be WILL you. WOULD kinda sends off the vibe of "sometime in the future, but not right now".

Nice on!
Schöne Arbeit aber ohne Lasergravierer schwer nachzumachen.
Fällt daher ehr in die Kategorie: "show and tell" anstatt DIY.

Aufs ergebniss bin ich gespannt!
