my workflow for using Google Draw to design ornaments, badges, or suncatchers to cut on our GlowForge Laser Cutter.
You can read more about my search to find workflows that increase access to maker tools for students who use Chromebooks in last week's post where I talk about WHY Glowforge and WHY Google Drawing.

I love this site so much that I subscribe to the Noun PRO version for less than $20 per year. This allows me to use any icon on the site without attribution and also adds features such as SVG download and a few other apps for easy integration with tools such as Google Slides, Adobe products, etc.
Notice that Stencilfy sliced the text in just the right places so that the the center of your letters would not fall out when cut. You'll also notice that there are cut lines in places where the letters overlap. This will work just fine in my design since the letters will be cut out. EXPORT the text as an SVG file.
