Step 1: Tools Used

Step 2: Design

  • Start by picking a shape or designing one
  • then flatten shape to a good size like .7
  • press control d then move up duplicate .7 and turn 1 degree
  • you can make it slightly larger or smaller depending on how you want it to look
  • Hold control d and it will duplicate that stop when it hits the size you want
  • Cut hole in it and your done
  • The one with the stars I filled in some bottom layers and did star pattern for rest
