instructions 3D Ladybug with Free SVG
Click on new project upload, upload image, go to your browser to find it on your computer, where you saved it at, bring in the SVG, tag it here so you can find it later under your favorites. Then save it.
Select it with the green box around it. And it shows in the toolbar, insert the image. When it comes in, it’s all grouped together.
Over on the right, it shows you all the different layers. You don’t have to do anything to this lady bug, unless you just want to resize it, which you can do by dragging the arrows up and down.
Because I’m going to frame it, I resized it to seven by nine- ish, You can do that by dragging here or just selecting in typing in here. You can end lock it to make it skinnier or fatter.
Then click on make it. Take a look at the mats to see if you want to move anything around to save paper. Then click on continue.
Select your machine and then your material type. Use the 85lb cardstock and the default pressure. Load your mats as directed.
Now all the pieces are cut. Lay them out in order so it’s easier to assemble.
Use the foam dots to attach the bottom of the body together. Red with hearts on top of black.
Before putting on head, take the wings and spread them out as shown to see the best placement for the head.
Use foam dots to attach red head to black and then attach head to black body.
Attach wings together as shown. Slightly offset them. That’s all there is to it!
