Ready for spring and Easter? This fun new layered design will certainly help with your Easter projects or decorations. I love to decorate my entryway with fun holiday or seasonal decor, and have to admit, this little guy is the first thing that will go up as soon as Valentine’s is over.
This design has six layers and has been saved in SVG, DXF, EPS, and PNG formats.
I 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. I’d ask that you direct your crafty friends here to download the files themselves. Also, I don’t allow my designs to be used in print-on-demand shops or on transfers that will be sold.

In the steps below, I outuline how you can make your own Layered Bunny in Cricut Design Space. The cut file can also be used with Silhouette, Brother Scan N Cut and other electronic cutting machines.
Materials Needed For Layered Easter Bunny
- 65lb. cardstock
- Spray adhesive glue
- Art Glitter Glue – This is my favorite liquid adhesive glue (there’s no glitter in it).
- Light grip mat (blue)
- Cricut Maker – or your favorite cutting machine
- Design #126 – Layered Bunny Egg SVG/DXF/EPS/PNG – My free cut file (available in my freebie vault—get the password at the bottom of this post).
Instructions How To Cut and Assemble the Layered Bunny Egg
With Cricut Design Space open on a new Canvas, click upload.
Next click Upload Image
On this screen, you may either drag & drop the design OR click Browse.
Navigate to where you’ve saved the downloaded and unzipped file. Then highlight the SVG format version of the design and click Open.
On this screen, you may change the name of the image and add tags for easy searching in your Cricut library of designs later. Then click Save.
Design Space will return to the Upload image screen. Highlight the newly added Layered Bunny design by clicking once, then click Insert Image.
Now that we’re back on the design canvas, you may resize the design and change the layer colors to closely match the colors you’ll use. Then you’re ready to click Make It!
Next select the material size to match your cardstock or material. Click Continue.
The last part of setting up the design to cut is to select your base material. I used Recollections 65lb. cardstock for my project and have found on my Maker that it cuts perfectly when I use the Light Cardstock setting. Not all settings work the same for each machine, you may need to play around with test cuts to find what works best for your machine and blade.
Using a brayer to firmly adhere the cardstock to the mat will greatly reduce tearing.
To remove cut cardstock from the mat while reducing tearing and curling, turn the mat upside down with the mat on your worksurface, remove the mat from the paper. Gently bend the mat back while keeping the paper as flat to your work surface as possible.
Once you have all the layers cut, you’re ready to glue them together. I recommend starting with the bottom layers and working up for this design. I used Art Glitter Glue to adhere the first couple of layers. Then switched to using spray adhesive for the last intricate top layers.
