My ladies bible study adopted a word this session "Recalculate".  It's related to a car navigation system.  When your driving and you make a wrong turn your system doesn't start yelling at you an panicing.  Neither does God.  It just says "Recalculate".  We all could relate to times in our lives where we needed to recalculate and go in a different direction. 

We decided we wanted to get a bookmark with recalculate on it.  I volunteered to make them at the techshop.

I had shared with the ladies how I had overcome my intimidation of the machines and used the laser cutter.  I often repeated to myself while taking the class and using the machine "I have the mind of Christ."  "I have a spirit of a sound mind"  So I know they will treasure this simple project.

Step 1:

Step one I took the Vinyl Cutter Class at the TechShop.  As I often try to do I booked time on the Vinyl Cutter right after the class to practice use the machine to help me remember what I learned in the class.  I really need hands on and to make several mistakes to feel comfortable on these machines.

I made the template in Corel Draw and asked for help to put it in a file that the Vinyl Cutter could read. 

Then I printed out several copies of Recalculate.  I weeded them then put the release paper over top of the word.
