Create This Easy DIY Layered Dolphin Mandala
I love dolphins and created this Dolphin Mandala SVG. My Dolphin Mandala SVG is a fun design to create. It can be displayed in a shadow box frame.
The layered dolphin will make a great addition to your beach decor. You can even add this layered dolphin to the front of a card for someone’s birthday.
Mandalas are very popular and this is a great beginner project.

Then Unzip the SVG cut file and upload each layer into design space. Before cutting out make sure that the size is correct.
I used a brayer when placing the Cardstock on the mat. This helps in making sure that the paper is adhered to the mat and will help in keeping the paper from ripping or moving when it is being cut.
- 1 Sheet White Cardstock 8 1/2 x 11
- 1 Sheet Cerulean Blue Cardstock 8 1/2 x 11
- 1 Sheet Robins Egg Blue Cardstock 8 1/2 x 11
- 1 Sheet Poster Board Metallic Silver 12 x 12
- Cricut Maker or other cutting machines

Step 1: Cutting the Layers of the Dolphin Mandala
Upload and cut out the white layer of dolphin mandala. (Check to make sure that the size of the layer is correct).
Next upload and cut out the cerulean blue layer of dolphin mandala. (Check to make sure that the size is correct).
Then upload and cut out the robins egg blue layer of the dolphin mandala. (Check to make sure that the size is correct).
Lastly, upload and cut out the silver layer of the dolphin mandala. This is the top layer. (Check to make sure that the size is correct).
Step 2: Assembling the Dolphin Mandala
Once you have cut out the four layers, you will start by placing glue on the white layer. See the photo below. Once you have done this, then place the cerulean blue layer on top of the white layer.
You will notice the eyes are cut out of the cerulean blue layer. These two layers should match up.
Next add glue to the cerulean blue layer and place the robin's egg blue layer on top of it.
Then add glue carefully to the metallic silver layer. See photo below.
After you have added the glue to the metallic silver layer, place it on top of the robin's egg blue layer carefully.
You are now ready to display your Dolphin Mandala. You can either show it off in a shadow box or place it on a shelf.
