Free Layered Year Of The Dragon Mickey SVG


Today, we are sharing this oh-so-adorable Free Layered Year Of The Dragon Mickey SVG to celebrate Chinese New Year. This is a huge event worldwide and starts on the 10th Feb 2024.

The Chinese calendar is a complex calendar that rotates in a 60-year cycle. This is based on 12 earthly branches. Each represents an animal year and the five heavenly stems: earth, wood, fire, water and metal. This year, we are celebrating the Year of the Dragon, the 5th animal in the Chinese Zodiac Calendar.

Cutting Your Year Of The Dragon Mickey SVG file SVG On Cricut

Line up all the layers

How To Build Your Dragon Mickey SVG Layered File

Firstly start by making sure they all line up and every Mickey layer is the correct way round, then flip all of the layers over.

Start by putting glue on the back of the second red layer and attaching to the back rose gold layer. Now add glue to the back of the black layer and attach onto the red.

Lastly, I used the red acrylic paint pens to add scales to the dragon; I added u-shaped flicks with my paint pen, trying to make it fluid to fit the dragon’s body.

  1. Thank you so much for this! I wanted to get my daughters matching shirts for our upcoming lunar new year celebration, but just couldn’t make the price work on the cute Etsy ones. Now I can make something cute for them.
