Step 1 4
Draw a shape onto card and cut with Dremel Multi – Tool and 409 wheel


Make a template from card by drawing a heart or star shape onto card and cutting it out. Draw around the templates onto balsa wood. Put the balsa wood into the vice to hold it steady. Using the cutting wheel 409 on the Dremel Multi-Tool, cut along the pencil lines to form the shape. Turn the balsa wood in the vice so that all sides can be cut.

Run the tool gently along the edges of the shapes to distress them slightly.
