Day Thirty-Six: Custom Engraved Fur Cards

Today's idea is brought to you courtesy of our fabulous intern, Ella Brooks. She's doing a really great job and has been tinkering the past few weeks to create working fur engraving. Most of this involves burning A LOT of fur. And rabbit fur offically smells awful engraved. I do not recommend it. I've been somewhat obsessed with the idea for a while of treating fur like leather, but like many ideas, a lot of trial and error is required to make a working copy. Ella finally nailed it today in cowhide and I am happy to say, the results were better than expected. She also created fur labels and leather business cards. You can check all of them out in the etsy shop:
