Laser Cut Lumineria Panel

Below is another Laser Cut project I did recently at TechShop SF. As an experiment, this is one panel of a kind of lantern common in Santa Fe, New Mexico, known commonly as a lumineria but more accurately referred to as farolitos. These traditionally were small bags containing candles set in sand.
These are seen at the Christmas Holidays.
The finished lumineria would consist of two of these panels on opposing sides, and a different design panel on the other two sides, glued/attached to form a box lantern.
Material for the experiment is just reclaimed sandwich cardboard.
The cardboard retains a smokey odor and some of the edges are just slightly blackened.
