 Hi friends, it's Natalie from Doodlecraft sharing a cute laser cut succulent magnet craft.

These little magnets make the perfect plant lover gift; perfect for the fridge, a Mother's day or teachers appreciation gift, to decorate a locker or just because!

 At-home laser cutters for personal use are becoming common place and they are so much fun.

 I've had a laser cutter for a year now and love it!

Check out this layered picture frame tutorial as well as this miniature guitar and studio! Let's get started on these succulent magnets!

Make your own cactus arrangement with this free succulent cut file that works in a laser cutter. With the multilayer layout DXF file, you can make this interesting set of plants. 

Turn them into magnets, scale them down for earrings or jewelry, or scale them larger for a welcome sign or home decor.
