Did you try to create a vector boundary around the components and letters and use the option to project the profile toolpa...

Re: 3D Busting bits

I'm not sure I'm following you exactly, but here is what I do to make the leaf.

Celtic Cross

I was reviewing a video of how I made a miniature Celtic Cross, in preparation to make another, and thought the forum might be interested in how the Aspire clip art Celtic weaves were incorporated into the cross. The miniature version was made as a retirement gift for an Anglican Priest, who happens...
