How To Make A Layered Candy Heart
Start by uploading your Candy Heart SVG files to Cricut Design Space. You should have 2 layers.
- Top Floral Layer, you also need to keep the centre circle cut out. (I used pink glitter card)
- Back layer (I used red card)
Measure your bauble and size a circle for the centre of the heart in Cricut Design Space as a guide the same size. Now, size your floral heart layer so your circle fits perfectly inside. The aim is that the candy bauble will go inside the heart, and you pop the candy in and glue the circle onto the back.
Size the back layer so it is slightly larger than the floral layer. When you are happy, discard the circle template and send the project to cut.
Building Your Layered SVG
When your project is cut, line up all layers to check they align correctly and 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.
Put this to one side and attach the floral layer to the back red layer using acrylic glue; however, don’t put glue on the top back or the circle; you need to leave this clear so the bauble tab slides in place.
When the glue is dry, add acrylic glue to the back of your circle and fit inside the heart. Slide the bauble tab under the floral layer to hide it.
