Step 1: Setting up your file

I selected a JPEG file that I liked from the interenet and opened it in CorelDraw.  From there I took all the necesary steps in order to make it a laserable file.  

I then created a circle to represent the moon and adjusted the size to my liking.  It helped to make the circle first on my original file and place it where I wanted to see how it was going to look.  Then I created the same size circle in a different file as I wanted the moon to be orange acrylic in stead of black.

Then to support my piece so it would stand alone I created some triangles that I would later attach to the back of my project.  I put those on the same file as the tree because they will be going on the back of the project and the color did not matter to me.
