Today I am sharing a good handful of Glowforge project ideas and free files to use on your Glowforge. These free files are perfect to make projects to sell. If you are a fan of pretty flowery projects or children projects, cards and door signs then you have come to the right place.
I have had my Glowforge Pro for a couple of months now and if you are reading this post, you may like me an obsessed user? Or thinking, “should I get a Glowforge?”. I can’t tell you the answer to that question?
However what I can tell you is I am obsessed with my Glowforge. It truly is a game changer for crafters to take your crafting to the next level.

Glowforge Project Ideas And Free Files To Make Projects To Sell
I have been working on the craft side of my blog for a little over 2 years, but been a crafter all my life. Notably one thing I have learn’t is be brave and go for it. Creativity is so objective, we all love different styles, colours and projects.
The same goes for equipment and materials. This inspires me to constantly strive to create new projects and free files for my readers to be able to access and download. Also offering a few hints and tips along the way. But I am no expert, I am a learn as I go kinda gal and like to share what works for me.
I am still experimenting and looking for new materials to try out. However some of my favourites so far are the proof grade wood and acrylic. Also Bamboo boards are fabulous for engraving as are pencils. I have found it also works to use Plywood and Spraypaint for a coloured effect.
The Thing I Do Have Is Lots Of Designs That Are Perfect For Your Next Glowforge Project!
Free Alphabet And Number Files For Door Plaques, Cake Toppers And Cards
These designs are perfect perfect projects to make as Glowforge Projects and sell. They work so well cut with wood and acrylic. Clear acrylic looks gorgeous if you spray the back with spray paint, just like the card I made below with my floral alphabet.
This Princess door sign was made with my free Princess Alphabet, it was super easy to make and could me made with any of my alphabet designs for children door signs or bedroom decor. I love the ideas of creating a wall freeze with a whole alphabet.
Or my Ballerina Alphabet, which I used to create a cake topper, I simply added a swirl around it and created a stick shape and attached the files together. If you have Glowforge pro on desktop this such and easy Glowforge project to make in the program. If you only have the free version you could use illustrator or Canva?
Other Free Alphabets I Offer For Glowforge Projects
My files are generally based around a theme, for example I recently created a layered Mermaid file, which I then went on to create a matching Mermaid Alphabet to work alongside the file. But this isn’t my only alphabet I have tons, my aim is to have letters and numbers to cut out for every occasion and season. And you know what? I’m getting there, the library is growing all the time. Check out just some of my alphabets below…….
- Space Rocket Alphabet
- Baby Elephant Alphabet
- Valentines Gnome Alphabet
- Christmas Alphabets
- Graduation Alphabet
- Birthday Alphabet
- Candy Alphabet
- Summer Beach Alphabet
Other Kinds Of Free Files I Offer?
I tend to draw what ever takes my fancy, thats the beauty of being a self employed crafter, however, I do listen to reader suggestions. Additionally I look at seasonal trends and occasions, I particularly love creating nursery wall art.
But also check out my back to school files, guitar and Butterly mandala cake toppers. They can all be cut with Glowforge as a multiple layered file or single layered file. The image below is cut on card-stock on my Cricut, which I also adore, however would also work with Glowforge.
Permission Rights, What Can My Free Glowforge Files Be Used For?
All my files (EXCEPT the Disney themed files which are personal use only) can be used for makers to use to make products to sell or personal crafting. This is as long as the project is not on a mass produced level or for stores.
However small businesses using my files to make for Etsy or Craft Fairs is fine. Additionally I don’t give permission for the files to be resold, only projects made with the files.
Glowforge Project Ideas Using Everyday Objects
It’s also a great idea to think outside the box with Glowforge, I find myself doing this a lot more lately. You know when you are browsing shops for wooden items to engrave you are obsessed ha ha.
Wooden Spoons are great to have in for last minute kitchen gift. OK maybe more of a tongue in cheek gift. Or indeed decorated for a wedding day token, do they still do that?
It’s also a romantic gesture to just pop in the cutlery draw on valentines day, saying I Love You. Although let’s make this clear, this has to be with no expectation of cooking!
Snack boards are also a great idea, especially for Mothers Day hampers or cheese boards.
