3D Mandala Letter B – Free SVG Link

3D Mandala Letter B

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.

3D Mandala Letter B

To make this project you will need:

Cricut MakerShop Cricut

Cricut design spaceCricut 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

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.

Materials:

I always customise my projects before going ahead and making them. I like to play around with the colours and layers to see what it will look like before I commit. As you can see below I changed the colours for each layer in customiser to match what colour card I wanted to use. It helps to try and find a colour in design space as close as a match to the colour card stock you are using.

Once you turn each layer into the colour you want you will see that all your mats will be colour coded for easy reference when making your project.

On design space my mats loaded up like this:

Cricut Layer 1
Cricut – Layer 1
Cricut Layers 2
Cricut Layers 2

Lotus Flower Woman Mandala – Settings and Materials I used for this project:

Mat 1

  • Materials: Self-adhesive vinyl and transfer tape – First Edition Adhesive Gloss Vinyl | 12 Colours | 52 inc 4 Transfer Tape Sheets from Amazon
  • Colour: Light purple (this I set to white because I didn’t want to confuse my machine with the light purple card on mat 5)
  • Mat: Blue LightGrip
  • Cricut material setting: Premium vinyl setting
  • Average Cut time – 12 mins
  • Average Weeding time – 16 mins

Mat 2

  • Materials: 250gsm Card stock from B&M Hobby World A4 Card 20pk – Silver
  • Colour: Silver
  • Mat: Green StandardGrip
  • Cricut material setting: Heavy Card stock – 270gsm (it struggled to cut all the way through on this setting, I may try adding more pressure next time)
  • Average Cut time – less than a minute

Mat 3

Mat 4

Mat 5

NOTE: MAKE SURE YOU KEEP THE HEAD PART TO ALL LAYERS EXCEPT THE SILVER LAYER

Lotus Flower Woman Mandala - Layered - Head
I nearly lost her head and my own after realising I’d threw her head away with the scrap!

I used a glue stick to layer all the pieces together, except the top vinyl layer.

NOTE: I am off to purchase a glue pen and mounting spray because those glue sticks are messy lol!

Bottom layer – Mat 2 Silver card stock

2nd layer – Mat 5 Light purple card stock

3rd layer – Mat 4 Dark purple card stock

4th layer – Mat 3 Dark blue card stock

5th layer – Mat 1 Light purple self adhesive vinyl
