3D Mandala Letter ‘B’ – Free SVG Link

Purple letter B in mandala style

3D Mandala Letter ‘B’ – Free SVG Link. Another great mandala project. This was a really fun project, I really enjoyed making this for my craft room.

To make this project you will need:

Cricut Maker

Cricut design space

3D Mandala Letter SVG (link below)

5 different colours of card

I used all 5 colours from the A4 Premium Card Pack – Purple Shades from hobbycraft. They have loads of lovely colours in this range.

Link to the card I used: https://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/purple-premium-card-a4-50-pack/626609-1011

(I am not affiliated with hobbycraft, I just love their stuff lol)

Adhesive Spray

I used adhesive spray for this project. All layers except the very top one I have used the adhesive spray 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).

Self Adhesive Vinyl for the very top layer

I used the light purple out of this pack from Amazon : https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07WGVPC1L/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

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.

Blue Light Grip Cricut Mat

I used the blue light grip mat for all the layers.

Settings:

Cricut settings

I made the SVG smaller to fit the paper I had – 20cm wide x 18.5cm length.

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.

Foam pads

I used adhesive foam pads for this project. All layers except the very top one I have used the foam pads to give a bit of depth to the project.

(NOTE: try to hide the foam pads under each layer by cutting them to size so you can’t see them).

Self Adhesive Vinyl for the very top layer

I used the light blue out of this pack from Amazon : https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07WGVPC1L/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I find that the very top layer has very small intricate cuts and the foam pads just wont work to adhere. So either cut out of card and glue the top layer on to the layer below or use self adhesive vinyl.

Next time I’ll try to hide the foam pads! lol

To make this project you will need:

Cricut Maker

Cricut design space

6 different colours of card

The cardstock used in this project is the pink colour spectrum pad from hobbycraft. It includes a lovely range of colours and 2 shimmery/glittery colours included.

Glue stick and foam pads

You will use both the glue sticks and the adhesive foam pads for this project. On every layer except the very top one I have used the foam pads to give depth to the project.

(NOTE: try to hide the foam pads under each layer by cutting them to size so you can’t see them, not like I have done lol).

Use the glue stick to attach the shimmer/glitter card to the layer below. It has very small intricate cuts and the foam pads just wont work.

Green Standard Grip Cricut Mat

You could use blue light grip mat and it cut every layer fine until the top glitter paper. It then decided to move on the mat and screwed itself up! I was not happy wasting my precious materials. Don’t get me wrong it was a nightmare trying to get it off the mat afterwards but at least it wasn’t ripped into pieces lol.

Cricut settings

Adjust the SVG design to fit the paper size you are using – 20cm wide x 19cm length.

Material setting for the shimmer/glitter paper – SHIMMER PAPER

Cardstock 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.
