3D Layered Letter Cut Files for Halloween
This 3D Halloween-themed layered letters come in 5 layers and includes SVG, EPS, DXF, and PNG cut files so you can cut this design on a Cricut, Silhouette, or other cutting machines.
3D layered alphabets are so much fun to make. My Fall Layered Letters were such a huge hit I couldn't wait to make another one. They are especially fun to make when they are for a specific holiday.
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. For this design, I enjoyed adding all of the fun elements of Halloween like witches and cauldrons, spiders and cobwebs, a cat, and of course a ghost.
This 3D Boo Layered Letter cut file can be used to decorate your home for Halloween or for a fun seasonal gift.
Let me show you how to cut one in Cricut Design Space using cardstock.
This can also be made using a Silhouette, Brother Scan n Cut, or another cutting machine. Just choose the file type that works for your machine. You can reference the 'How to use cut files' document included in the zip file to learn which file type is needed for your cutting machine.
Materials & Supplies
Below is what the design will look like when you add it to Cricut Design Space. Resize the design if necessary.
Each letter is originally 8 inches tall but the width varies for each letter. Keep the width in mind if you're using this in a frame.
The design can be resized using the Edit Toolbar at the top of the page. I resized mine to 5 inches tall so I could fit them on the Canvas.
Now you're ready to cut it. Click Make It in the upper-right hand corner and you'll be taken to the prepare screen.
Here you'll want to select your material size.
Now it's time to connect to your machine and select your material. For all of my layered designs, I use the Cardstock (for intricate cuts) setting.
This setting along with a clean, sticky mat will ensure you have a nice, clean-cut.
Assembling the Free BOO Layered Letters
My favorite foam adhesive is the 0.12-inch circles from Forever in Time. They are incredibly small but they work perfectly for intricate layered designs.
This was made using Recollections Purple Passions cardstock.

Tips for cutting the BOO Layered Letters
When cutting any detailed design there are a few tricks to make sure you're not wasting time and materials.
Always uses a clean mat
Anytime I'm not getting a clean-cut, it's usually because my mat isn't sticky enough. Clean the mat using a scarper to get any particles off and then wipe it down with a baby wipe and let it dry.
Make sure your blade is free of any debris
If your blade starts to tear the design, rather than cut it, pull the blade from the machine and check to make sure there aren't any small pieces stuck to it.
Use the right material setting
If For detailed cuts on layered designs I use the Cardstock (for intricate cuts) setting on my Cricut Maker. It uses 182 cut pressure with the Fine-Point Blade and cuts the material twice. It's made a huge difference when cutting these types of designs.
Do a test cut first
If you're using other types of materials other than Cardstock, do a test cut first to make sure the settings are correct. It's so disappointing when you wait for your design to cut and it didn't cut through correctly.
Bend the mat not the material
Always bend your mat away from the material, keeping your design flat, when trying to release it from the mat. Especially when using cardstock. Otherwise, you'll end up bending the design and it will be difficult to get it to lay flat again.
Find the right color palette
Each design takes on its own look and feel depending on the colors you choose. Need help finding the right color palette? Head over to my blog post on Choosing the Right Color Combinations for Crafting to learn how to choose the right color palette for your next project.
