Hey guys, new to this forum and i have to say i love what i see so far. I was hoping to get some advice or ideas on some simple wedding favors i can make for an upcoming steampunk inspired wedding. I have access to a laser cutter so i can make some pretty neat things, however there is going to be over 100 people so it shouldn't be to evolved in manufacture and not very complex. i have been looking around online and cant seem to find inspiration or many good ideas, so any input from this forum would be greatly appreciated.   

Cheers

Is this your wedding?

I get a bit weary offering up ideas to 1 post members who haven't done an intro.
Some take, copy or steal your ideas just to make a buck never to be heard from again.

I like the cootie catcher, first item in this Pinterest page https://www.pinterest.com/lafemnikita/steampunk-wedding-favors/

This site sells stuff they call Steampunk; you might get ideas there even if you don't purchase  http://www.littlethingsfavors.com/steampunk-wedding-favors.html

I have to somewhat agree with Mr. Selected, but just for farts and giggles:

Kind of depends on what you call "complex"; An idea I just had involves lasercutting a pierced-gear-based motif around the edge of a handkerchief to simulate lacy  decolletage. A bit involved, but not nearly as much so as drawing and cutting such a thing completely by hand.

Unfortunately,
1. I'm not sure such a thing is possible without scorching the fabric or setting it alight, and
2. It also might smack of "cheapskating" to some folks (some are picky about simulated vs. actual things like lace, embroidery, woodburning, et cetera).
Like I said, it depends on what you call "involved," and what lengths you're willing to go to. *shrug*

Two cogs interlocked, resembling the married couple and how well they fit together? One copper and one silver? Smiley
