It all started a couple months ago when I wanted to decorate my entryway and created a Thankful banner. I was so sad when it was time to take it down, that I created a similar banner for Christmas.
Since that time, I’ve received many requests for different holidays or a birthday banner. I figured it may just be easier to make all of the letters so that everyone can use the pieces as fits individual needs.
Valentine’s Day is the next holiday that will decorate my home, so seemed fitting to use the letters for a Be Mine banner. ❤️

MATERIALS TO MAKE A LAYERED MANDALA BANNER
- 65 lb Cardstock
- Elmers Craft Bond Spray Adhesive
- Art Glitter Glue
- Light grip mat (blue light grip)
- Cricut Maker – or your favorite cutting machine.
- Design #114 – Layered Mandala Alphabet Banner SVG – The free cut file (available in my freebie vault—get the password at the bottom of this post).
- Ribbon Garland – This is totally optional and I thought it would be cute for my project. Listing here for those who may be interested.
HOW TO CUT AND ASSEMBLE THE LAYERED MANDALA BANNER
This design includes 45 SVG files. I’ve grouped them in labeled folders for ease of use. In addition, there is one blank Banner SVG.
The amount of paper needed will depend on your individual project. Each SVG has five layers. I’ve saved each design to be 3.5 inches wide and 5.087 inches tall. This is the same size as the Be Mine banner pictured on this post.
When cutting the Recollections paper on my Maker, I use the light cardstock cut setting with the paper on a light blue mat.
Using a brayer to adhere the cardstock to the mat will help reduce tears while cutting.
To remove the paper from the mat without tearing or curling, turn the mat upside down on your work surface and gently bend the mat away from the paper while keeping the paper as flat as possible on your table.
Make sure when cutting the top layer not to throw out the center of the letters that contain middle pieces. You’ll want to glue them to the second layer.
Because the top layer is so thin, I use spray adhesive to attach the top to the second layers.
For this project, I used Art Glitter Glue between the remaining layers. If you want to create your banner with a bit more dimension, foam tabs could be used instead.
