Today I am sharing a 3D layered heart mandala project with your Cricut and an optional twist to turn it into a box – perfect for a gift or chocolates on Valentine’s Day.
3D mandala crafts are one of the simplest but most elegant projects you could make as a beginner to using cutting machines.
– Heart Mandala and box template
– 65-80 lb cardstock – Liquid glue or quick dry tacky glue – 3D foam tape – Cricut machine – Weeding tool – Glue gun (optional)
The first step to making your layered heart mandala is downloading the templates in the Freebie Vault. Once downloaded,
upload the design to Cricut design space
Next, decide on the size of your design. I recommend around 8 inches wide. Choose your paper. I like to mix different shades and textures.
To create the 3D mandala effect, you will need 3D foam tab tape. This 3D foam tape makes a little space between each layer to add height and dimensions.
This heart mandala has six layers in total. With the topmost layers that are more detailed, I recommend using the ‘cardstock for intricate cuts’ setting in Design Space for best results.
