A few weeks ago I created my first layered mandala design after seeing all the beautiful creations that people were posting in different Facebook craft groups. With all the “extra” time that I was spending at home, I thought it would be fun to make one myself. I did and now I’m hooked. As soon as I made that first one, I had it in my head that I wanted to do them in letters. So many hours longer then I thought it would take, I’ve finally created my mandala alphabet set. I pray these bring you joy and something to do while stuck at home. I personally plan to make one for my daughter’s bedroom. I’d love to see what you do with these designs. Post a photo in my Facebook group and let me know. ❤️
We don’t mind if you use these designs for personal or small business commercial use up to 200 items, but please do not re-sell or re-distribute the files. We ask that you direct your crafty friends here to download the files themselves. Also, we don’t allow our designs to be used in print on demand shops or on transfers that will be sold. Please refer to our TOU for full details.
Each of the SVG/DXF letter files has six layers. Feel free to play around and possibly leave some of the layers out of your creation. I think projects would look beautiful with just a few of the layers. Or maybe skip every other layer.
Click the photo box below if you’d like to join my FREE SVG Group. In the group, we have both Cricut and Silhouette crafters that are happy to help if you’re stuck on a project and have questions. We’d love to see your creations and I post FREE designs and fonts from trusted, reliable sources.
MATERIALS TO MAKE 3D LAYERED ALPHA LETTERS
- 65 lb Cardstock – On the pink C in the photos, I used Recollections Brand Cardstock Pink Buttons multipack along with Recollections Shimmer White
- Foam tabs – These foam tabs from Tombow are my absolute favorite. They’re thick enough to provide a good dimension to each project.
- Spray Glue – The top layer is very thin, so using a spray glue to adhere works best.
- Brayer – This handheld tool is key to getting the paper on the mat correctly to reduce paper ripping while cutting.
- Light grip mat (blue light grip)
- Cricut Maker – or your favorite cutting machine.
- Design #44 – Floral Layered Alphabet Mandala AND Layered Punctuation – My free SVG/DXF cut files (available in my freebie vault —get the password at the bottom of this post).
