Free Layered Candy Flower SVG


In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through creating this cute layered Candy Flower SVG for Cricut, Silhouette, and other cutting machines. This craft project can be used for many occasions, such as birthday cards, party favours, or personalised gifts.

I wanted to create something perfect for parties, birthday cards, and crafting with kids. Teachers could build kits in zip-lock bags, simply pre-make the candy pod and add it to a bag with the rest of the layers for the kiddies to build. This would also make a great party activity.

How To Make A Layered Flower Candy Holder

Start by uploading your Layered Flower SVG files to Cricut Design Space. You should have 5 layers.

  1. Top layer, hollow circle: I used a yellow card this is to sit over the bauble.
  2. Yellow circle layer, the back of the candy bauble.
  3. Petal layer, you will need to duplicate this so you have 10 layers, I used 5 colours, so 2 petals for each colour.
  4. White flower offset.
  5. Back green stalk layer, this is optional.

Create Your Candy Pod

Measure your bauble and size a circle in Cricut Design Space as a guide the same size. This is your guide; now, size your yellow circle layer so it’s slightly bigger; the bauble needs to sit on top and measure the hollow circle so it fits over the top.

Measure the circle so it is slightly bigger than the bauble

Build Your Flower

Next, size the white layer so the yellow circle fits on the inside, and duplicate your petal layer ten times. You now need to colour your petals; I chose five colours and arranged them to fit inside the outer white layer. Rotate as you build your flower to create the flow shape.

Lastly, size your green stalk layer; this is optional but looks super cute. Now send to cut.

Building Your Layered Candy Flower SVG

When your project is cut, line up all layers to check they align correctly. Now start by filling the bauble with candy, then add superglue around the edge of the card circle cut out and pop on top of the bauble, keep to the edges so the glue doesn’t leak into the sweets and allow the glue to dry. I left it an hour before the next step.

Attach the yellow card circle to the baulble

Now build the flower. Start by placing the white glitter layer down, and build the petals one by one so that they rotate around the flower and the centre circle all match exactly.

Cut all your petals for your candy flower

Be sure to alternate the colours of the flower petals as you work around.

Lastly, add the candy pod with acrylic glue and attach the green later to the back.
