Free Layered Christmas SVGs: 3D Papercraft Projects for Christmas

Free Layered Christmas SVGs

Download free layered Christmas SVGs here!

Layered cardstock projects are my absolute favourite craft to make, especially at Christmas time.

I love how the cutout shapes come together just with a few foam pads and some glue to make three-dimensional artwork.

I regularly release free layered SVGs and of course this includes a collection of Christmas designs!

You can find all of my free Christmas SVGs below. Click the “Read more” buttons to go to the tutorial for that particular design, which includes a box to download the files.

As well as SVG format, most of the designs also come in DXF and PNG format so that they will work for a wider range of cutting machines.

How to make layered designs on a Silhouette machine

I don’t have a video showing the Silhouette Studio software, but will be making some in 2022.

If you have a Silhouette and use the free version of Silhouette Studio then you’ll need to upload the DXF version of the file into Silhouette Studio.

If you have any of the paid versions of Silhouette Studio (e.g. Business Edition) then use the SVG file instead as that will be easier to work with in your software.
