Free Bumble Bee SVG For Cricut And Glowforge

My Free Bumble Bee SVG was inspired by the creeping in of lighter evenings, isn’t it glorious to be able to walk the dogs in daylight? That got me thinking of Spring and Easter Crafts and of course you think of Spring, you think of new life, flowers and Bee’s.

I also have a Bee Alphabet which is super cute. However for now my Bee SVG is perfect for Cricut, Glowforge and Silhouette.

The download comes as an SVG and PNG one layer file and can be used as a single layer or if you follow the tutorial below can be converted to a multi layer mandala file.

Start by adding a circle to Glowforge Studio, set the circle to cut and position your Bee inside the circle and set that to engrave. If you want to create multiple disks, select all and copy your file. When you are happy press print.

How To Make A Layered Bumble Bee SVG On Cricut

Cutting Your Layered Bumble Bee SVG On Cricut

When you send your Bumble Bee SVG/PNG files to your Cricut to cut, ensure you use your brayer to roll the paper, vinyl or card to adhere to the mat. Movement will affect the cut. 

Line up all the layers in design space, to confirm all files line up correctly and exactly the same size. Remember you are using 8 different colours so have the card stock ready to hand and really think about the colours.

I chose rainbow colours as I really wanted a Rainbow Bee, but you can go for whatever colours you like.
