It’s October 1st! Time to get your Halloween On! What better way than with a cute Ghost? This 3D Layered Ghost with Free SVG can be made into the paper ghost or put on a T-shirt!
Yep! Think outside the box when it comes to these layered files. Sometimes you can do more with the file just by tweaking a few things. Let your imagination run wild!
That’s exactly what I did when I was making the paper ghost. I thought the flowered ghost layer would be so cute on a T-shirt. I just love it!
Here’s a video explaining how to use the file in Design Space:
Supplies for 3D Layered Ghost with Free SVG
- 65 to 80 lb Cardstock in varying colors
- Foam Double Sided Stickers
- Cardboard or Chipboard
- Cricut Maker
- Weeding Tool
- Glue Stick
- Circut Iron On Vinyl
- Cricut Easy Press
- Gorilla Glue Stick or Glue Gun
These are the layers for the Ghost. Not that the black goes behind the grey one that has the arms. Also, do not bend the arms with a crease. Leave them straight. You’ll see why in a minute.
The Boo also cuts the middles of the letters out. I glue the black to the white background for the sign. I did not layer them with dots. I used Gorilla Glue glue stick but you can use regular glue or a glue gun.
Join the layers together with foam dots and wrap the arms around to the front of the sign and attach. I used a foam dot for mine.
Here’s a view to show you how the layers all went together and the arms wrapped around. Now what is also cool is I included an easel in this file as well to hold the ghost up so you can put him just about anywhere.
I used a piece of cardboard I had saved from a paper tablet when I was done with it. I tend to save things like that!
The Cricut cut it like a charm. I do recommend that you cut this by itself so you can select chipboard with pressure set to more.
You will be alerted to change the blade to score first then blade next. There are score lines in the file.
On this part, you can glue a piece of black paper to the bottom so the cardboard does not show through.
I then moved on to Heat Transfer Vinyl to make a T-Shirt with the one Ghost Layer with the flowers on it. I cut that and the Boo only.
I use the Heat Pad and the Easy Press for my T-Shirts. I also love doing this on the Self Healing Mat. It helps me line up the Heat Transfer Vinyl on the T-shirt better.
I set my Easy Press to 325 degrees for 18 seconds. I find that works really well for me for Cricut Iron On Vinyl. I have tried the recommended settings and found I was having to do it twice in some cases so now this is what I do.
Lift up a corner (be careful, it’s hot) to see if the vinyl adhered. Then let it cool down to the touch before removing the plastic sheet on top. I have found if you do not let it cool, it can create a wrinkled bubbly look.
I love my little Boo’s! Want a copy of the Free SVG?
