Supplies for the Pumpkin 3D Mandala Centerpiece SVG
How to assemble the Pumpkin
After you have downloaded the SVG, go to make it and cut out as many layers of each of the pumpkins you wish. The example made above is just one layer of each design.

This is the order of the layers. Each layer is slightly shorter than the other. You need to cut 1 of the green and minimum of 2 for all the other layers.
Cut out more layers of each to make your pumpkin more full.
Use different colors and patterns to create a variety!
This is the middle “Base” of the pumpkin. You only need to cut one of the green which ends up sandwiched between the two brown layers.
Use a glue stick to adhere these layers together so the base is very sturdy.
Once you have cut all the layers, Use a scoring tool to add score lines on each pumpkin layer.
I used this handy tool instead of doing it on the Cricut, but you can add score lines to the pumpkin in Design Space if you wish.
I like the ability to put the lines exactly where I need them without having to switch out the tools in the machine.
Bend each layer at the score line.
Attach the double sided tape to the Backs of each layer down the middle.
Align the layers at the bottom to make it easier to attach them to each other in the right place.
Then lower the layer down and press on the middle to get the tape to stick.
On the center piece Score it as shown here start at the bottom and angle upwards as shown.
Bend the paper on the line.
Attach a piece of double sided tape to the front right as shown.
Attach the taped edge to the last layer (smallest one) on the right of the score line on that layer.
Attach a small piece of double sided tape to the other side and attach it to the pumpkin.
When you are ready to store your pumpkin just separate this tiny piece so the pumpkin will lay flat for storage.
This creates a rounded center piece to add a decorative piece that will add stability to your pumpkin.
You may chose to leave it off if you wish.
This is how your center piece will look after being attached to the pumpkin layer.
You will repeat all these steps for the other side of the pumpkin giving it a 3D effect.
Or you can just do one side and hang it on a wall or door!
Take your time to pull apart the layers and create the roundness of your pumpkin!
