About This File

Mini Scroll Saw Business in a Box! 

Earn a little extra cash this Holiday season, and help pay for your scroll saw addiction...errr....hobby.  With this kit, you can personalize as many Holiday ornaments as you want with this simple template.

This kit includes an Inkscape (svg) source file that allows you to personalize ornaments with names and dates. Also included are step-by-step instructions,  premade images to advertise your services that you can post to social media, and the GIMP file in case you'd like to customize your promotions. Here's what would be included in the kit:

  • SVG Ornament File - Inkscape SVG file that you can use to customize ornaments.  (US Letter & A4 size)
  • Step by Step Instructions - Easy instructions on how to use the Inkscape file, and how to export PDFs and PNGs from Inkscape.
  • Promotion Banners - Pre-made images you can post to social media that advertise your ornaments. (5 price-points in both $ & £)
  • GIMP Promotion Banner Template - GIMP source file that allows you to customize your promotion banner with your name and picture.

Note:  This ornament kit is meant for folks who have a working knowledge of Inkscape.  You don't have to be an advanced user, but you should have the basics down.  If you'd like to learn more about Inkscape, you can find my free online course here.


Here's an overview of how the kit works:

Selling Ideas:

With this kit, you can either sell finished patterns to fellow scrollers or crafters.  Or you can sell finished ornaments.

  • Custom patterns for fellow scrollers & crafters.  (suggested price:  $1-2 per custom pattern)
  • Post to your Facebook (or other social media) that you make custom ornaments.  Friends and family would jump at the chance to have a custom ornament designed and cut by you.  (suggested price: $10-15 each).
  • Take orders at a craft show, church bizarre or event.  Or even scroll on-site. (suggested price: $10-15 each).
  • Sell on Etsy or similar online handmade marketplaces.  Just give yourself time to make and ship the items.  (suggested price:  $12-20 each)
  • Fundraiser for a youth group, school, or sports team.  (suggested price:  $12-20 each)
  • Or maybe, they’re just unique gifts for friends and family (suggested price:  $0 each)


Having Trouble with Union?

There's a bug in the most recent version of Inkscape where Union doesn't work the way you'd expect.  Check out this tutorial for a workaround:
