Concept: 

Nametags slip into the grooves in the corks to indicate seat placings. The dogs are for male guests and the cats are for female guests.

To cut a batch I first cut circles into a board stuck to the bed for alignment then placed the corks in the holes to ensure correct alignment.

Materials:

  • Champagne corks (both used and unused)

Processes:

  • Illustrator
  • Lasercutter
  • Bandsaw to cut the cork (after laser cutting)

Time:

1-2 hours to complete the entire set

Quantity produced:

150 (75 of each)

Files:

corktops

The first test was a shield but it didn’t fit with our theme (dog/cat).
