About 'Sunflower Vase Free Layered SVG'
This beautiful vase of sunflowers makes the perfect layered shadow box gift for Mother's Day.
The free sunflower cutting file comes in SVG, DXF and PNG file formats. If you're using a Cricut machine then you need to upload the SVG version into Design Space. This is the one that starts SVG_ in the filename.
The layers on the design come together beautifully to create a 3D effect.
I cut the sample you can see in the pictures at 6.5 inches wide.
You can certainly make it larger than that, but I wouldn't recommend going much smaller as the leaves on the bottom layer will become quite small and difficult for your Cricut to cut.
