Adhesive Spray

I used adhesive spray for this project. This gives a flat kind of look to the project.

(NOTE: Open the window and cover the workspace whilst using this. The spray smells really strong and even though I had a A3 pad covering my workspace it still got everywhere lol).

The adhesive spray that was used for this project is not showing online but it was purchased from Hobbycraft instore and it is called ‘Permanent Adhesive Spray 200ml’

Adhesive Foam Pads (optional between layers for a 3D effect)

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

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.

Rainbow Layered Mandala Heart – Free Layered SVG

Rainbow Layered Mandala Heart

Rainbow Layered Mandala Heart – This morning at Beejui Creations I have had my first attempt at making 3D Mandalas!

Since having my Cricut Maker delivered just over a week ago I’ve been playing around with card, paper & vinyl.

There are lots of lovely mandala effect projects on Facebook & Pinterest and I really like them so I’ve been dying to give them a go.

The A3 craft card used for this project was from B&M. (I had to use a purple coloured card from a pack from amazon due to no purple in this pack!)

First attempt I cut the top off the hearts …. well I didn’t the machine did! NOTE: A4 size card does not fit the biggest heart on lol

Rainbow Layered Mandala Heart - paper too small
Rainbow Layered Mandala Heart – Hahaha I’ll use bigger card stock next time!

Second attempt I accidentally ripped the top intricate detailed heart but managed to glue it on so you can only tell if you look close enough.

I’ll be more careful in the future!

Hooray for glue sticks! They are now my best friend ever!

Rainbow 3D Mandala Heart - on Cricut maker
I love this machine 🙂

To make this Rainbow Layered Mandala Heart project you will need:

  • Cricut Maker – Shop Cricut
  • Cricut Design Space – Cricut Design Space™
  • Mandala Heart SVG (link below to this lovely file)
  • 6 different colours card A3 or 12”x12” (I went with rainbow colours but you could do an ombré effect with different shades of the same colour)
  • Glue stick
  • Lots of patience and a steady hand for the top heart lol

The link for this SVG is from here:

https://specialheartstudio.com/free-layered-alpha-mandala-svg-set/

They design some brilliant mandala SVG’s. They also do alphabet, numbers & punctuation mandala designs. I will be definitely having a go at them soon.

For this first attempt I have just glued all the layers straight onto each other. Further down you will see the next project where I used foam pads to give it more depth.

I think I prefer the second colour way, but both look great for the first attempt.

Smaller Rainbow Layered Mandala Heart using Foam Pads

I made the heart smaller on design space by reducing the size to 15cm and cut out the same as the bigger version.

I added foam spacers between the layers this time to give it more depth. It looks a bit more 3 dimensional, I like it!

The very top layer I did in vinyl instead of card stock. The card stock just didn’t want to play ball with it being smaller, it looked really awful. The vinyl was a pain to weed though but it looks so much better.

I attached the heart to light grey card stock with glue dots and framed it within a shadow box. I added a nice caption and made it into this lovely wall hanging.
