Learn How to Make an Easy Liberty Bell Mandala
Create this 3D layered Liberty Bell using a Cricut Machine, Cardstock and Adhesive.
Layered Mandalas are one of my favorite things to design, and they are easy to form. You can use this Layered Liberty Bell to display in a shadow box or even use it on the front of a card. There are only three layers to this Liberty Bell Mandala SVG cut file.

For this project I used my Cricut Cuttlebug and a woodgrain embossing folder to give the top of the Liberty Bell Mandala a more textured look to make it realistic looking.

Step 1. Cutting Out the Liberty Bell Mandala
First upload and cut out the black layer of the liberty bell mandala. Check to make sure the size is correct.
Next upload and cut out the silver layer. Check to make sure the size is correct.
Then upload and cut out the gold layer. Check to make sure the size is correct.
Upload and cut out the brown layer. Check to make sure the size is correct.
Step 2. Assembling Your Liberty Bell Mandala
Starting with the silver/grey layer, put foam glue dots on the back of the layer.
Next center the silver/grey layer on top of the black layer.
Next take the gold layer and put foam glue dots on the back of the layer.
Center the gold layer on top of silver/grey layer
I added some more foam glue dots to the layer after I placed it on top of the silver/grey layer. I cut a foam glue dot in half and put it under the two pieces near the crack in the bell.
The brown layer is the last layer.
Using a cuttlebug or other embossing machine and the wood grain embossing folder, emboss the brown layer.
Turn the brown layer over and add foam glue dots to the back of it.
Then place the brown layer in the center of the top of the bell.
Your Liberty Bell Mandala is now ready to display.
