Yesterday in my incredible Facebook group, a member asked for a mandala star design. Once in a while, when members ask, the need to create hits me right then and there. When I started on this one, I couldn’t stop. Sharp point stars, chubby stars, rounded corners…….the ideas could go on forever.

These four stars each have four layers and have been saved in SVG format.

Materials for a Layered Star Mandala

How To Make A 3D Layered Star Mandala

Download the free SVG from my Freebie Vault. Unzip the download folder. For help on how to view SVG thumbnails and unzipping or extracting information click HERE.

Open Cricut Design Space.

Click Upload

Click Upload Image.

Next, click browse.

Navigate to the folder where you’ve saved the unzipped SVG file.

On the Prepare to Upload screen, you can rename the design in the “Image Name” box and also add Tags for searching your Cricut library later. These steps are optional. Once renamed or tagged, click upload.

Now click one time on the recently uploaded stars. A green frame will highlight around the box. Then click “Insert Image”.

All four stars have been saved in the same SVG file. If you don’t plan to cut all four, click ungroup to separate the stars. Each star will still be saved in a group for easy resizing.

I cut the stars in the photos from Recollections 65lb. cardstock using the Medium cardstock setting on my Cricut Maker. I always recommend using a brayer to make sure the paper firmly adheres to the mat. This greatly reduces tearing while cutting intricate designs.

Once cut, gently remove the stars by turning the mat upside down and keeping the paper as flat as possible to your work surface.

To assemble the stars, I used micro-foam tabs on the two stars with the sharp points and the rounded point stars were glued together using Art Glitter Glue.
