Engraving Acrylic With Cricut Maker

I have been having a lot of fun playing with acrylic sheets and rod. I love that when you put an engraved acrylic sheet on an LED strip, it lights up making it a beautiful lighted floating design. 

I think it makes an amazing personalized gift for anyone! Especially for kids as a night lamp. Plus, you can make multiple designs and easily switch them out!
