Laser cut text for possible lampshade or paper design

I have considered adding a further dimension to my designs by laser cutting text into them. The text has to be stencil text for it to cut out and I copied and pasted a free font from the internet to use in Illustrator to achieve this.

I cut into white card and also into tracing paper. The result on card is great but I would want it to be bigger than it is. The tracing paper burnt slightly but  a decent effect was gleaned.

If I enlarge the text it will need tidying up as the edges are a bit wobbly, I need to perfect using the pen tool within Illustrator to finish this task.
