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 – Turquoise Shades from hobbycraft. They have loads of lovely colours in this range.

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).

Link to adhesive foam pads: https://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/white-adhesive-foam-pads-25mm-x-12mm-x-2mm-40-pieces/606180-1000

If you want a flat look use adhesive spray in between the layers. (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 use is not showing online but I bought it from Hobbycraft and it was called ‘Permanent Adhesive Spray 200ml’

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.

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.

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

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

Floral 3D Dream Catcher – Layered SVG Link

Floral 3D Dream Catcher

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.

Floral 3D Dream Catcher - Layered SVG Link

To make this Floral 3D Dream Catcher – Layered SVG project

You will need:

Cricut MakerShop Cricut

Cricut Design SpaceCricut 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: 

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.

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.

3D Mandala Letter A – Free SVG Link

3D Mandala Letter A

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

3D Mandala Letter A - Free SVG Link
3D Mandala Letter A

To make this project you will need:

Cricut MakerShop Cricut

Cricut design spaceCricut 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.
