Floral 3D Dream Catcher – Layered SVG Link. Another great mandala project. This was a really fun project, I really enjoyed making this for my craft room.
I love how this turned out in black & white.
To make this Floral 3D Dream Catcher – Layered SVG project
You will need:
Cricut design space
2 sheets of black cardstock
2 sheets of white cardstock
Self Adhesive Vinyl – 1 sheet of black and 1 sheet of white vinyl
I used the white and black vinyl sheets in this pack from Amazon:
I find that the very top layer has very small intricate cuts and the foam pads/glue is hard work to get it to adhere. So you can either cut out of card and spray glue the top layer on to the layer below or use the self adhesive vinyl.
Adhesive Spray and / or adhesive foam pads
I used adhesive spray for this project. All layers except the very top layers which I have used self adhesive vinyl on. This gives a flat kind of look to the project.
(NOTE: Open the window and cover your workspace, this spray smells really strong and even though I had a A3 pad covering my workspace it still got everywhere lol).
The adhesive spray that I used is not showing online but I bought from Hobbycraft and it was called ‘Permanent Adhesive Spray 200ml’
If you want a more 3D look use foam pads in between the layers. (NOTE: try to hide the foam pads under each layer by cutting them to size so you can’t see them).
Blue Light Grip Cricut Mat
I used the blue light grip mat for all the layers.
Floral 3D Dream Catcher SVG
I used this purchased SVG file from https://designbundles.net/ :
Floral 3D Dream Catcher Notes:
There is 6 layers to this project.
I chose to glue the bottom 2 layers of both the larger and smaller cardstock pieces together and used the self adhesive vinyl to make the detailed top pieces. I then put adhesive foam pads in between these layers for a 3D effect.
Next time I make this project I think I will add foam pads to most of the layers and see what it looks like then. I might even bling it up a bit with some glitter card stock and see how it turns out.
Floral 3D Dream Catcher Cricut Settings:
You may have to adjust the SVG to fit the paper you have.
Material setting for the self adhesive vinyl – PREMIUM VINYL
Material setting for the other layers – LIGHT CARDSTOCK – 60lb (163gsm)
NOTE: there may be better settings but these are the ones that worked for me.
