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.
