STEP 1-CHOOSE YOUR VIDEOGAME

Today i choose Pokemon FireRed,

This is what we will be working on.

-

Go to https://www.spriters-resource.com to find the images of your video game.

-

Then select the images you want to use, in my case i am going to choose Charizard and Mewtwo since are my favorite pokemons.

-

On the same website i can find the icons and background of the game as well, i will use the battle background and icons.

-

Now that we selected our images we go to inkscape software and make a frame of 460x380.

-

Now we have to crop our images to select what we only need, so we are going to crop charizard, mewtwo, and the icons needed. I outline charizard and then Menu Object-Clip-Set. i repeated the same step for all my items.

--

Once you clipped all your items, set the size you want for the picture.

-

Then we proceed to laser cut the silhouette of each item we will use.

-

After you have the laser cut shapes, i print out the pictures of your silhouettes on a sticker A4 size sheet, make sure you select A4 size and make sure they fit the same you have for the laser cut silhouettes.

-

At this step we will use the exacto knife to cut the printed images.

-

Next, place the stickers on the laser cut parts, and then glue the laser cut parts accordingly to the design desired.

-

To make the frame I made the window 1 inch smaller that the background, but you can make it as you like., i designed on inkscape a simple frame ,laser cut it and glue it, no big issue there, or you can buy a black frame if preferred.
