Leprechauns are fun, make-believe characters commonly associated with St. Patrick’s Day. They are often described as old men with crooked hats who make shoes and are usually depicted in green. This cute, easy DIY Leprechaun Candy Dome Free SVG Cut File is sure to bring a smile to the faces of kiddos and adults alike. This leprechaun had tons of personality with his tuft of hair peeking through, his smile, and freckles. You can even have fun changing up his eyebrow position which will undoubtedly change his facial expression. Plus, this candy dome includes an open and close mechanism making this craft refillable and reusable. Scroll below for cutting instructions and video assembly. Happy Crafting!

Instructions

Step 1: Download the Leprechaun Candy Dome Free SVG File

Download the SVG file in my free Resource Library HERE. You can get the password for my library by filling out the newsletter form at the bottom of this post.

Save the downloaded zipped folder on your computer. Pay attention to where on your computer the folder downloads and then unzip the folder to extract the contents. The folder and files must be unzipped (extracted) before you can upload the SVG file into your cutting software.

Step 2: Upload the Leprechaun Candy Dome Free SVG File

Upload the SVG file into Cricut Design Space. The SVG file will upload grouped together. There is no need to ungroup the file. It is also not necessary to resize this design. When you upload, the design will produce a leprechaun that is approximately 9.4in height x 5.6in width. For this size, you will use an 80mm clear dome. If you wish to made the leprechaun smaller, to fit a 70mm clear dome, you must resize the ENTIRE design to 8.2878in height x 7.4391in width. Once you have uploaded the design onto your software canvas and have it at the size that you desire, click Make It in the upper right corner.

Step 3: Check Mat Preview

After clicking Make It, a new window will open with your mat preview. You should see that the software has prepared ten (10) mats for the cut. Use the scroll bar to the left of the mat preview screen to view each mat. Each color layer has been separated onto its own colored mat and all the file elements of the same color are added onto the same mat. Take note of the order of each layer and line up your mats accordingly. Once you have examined all the layers and have placed your mats in the correct cut order, click to select your first mat along the left side of your screen. Then select the continue button at the lower right of your screen.

Step 4: Card stock Settings, Load Mat and Cut Materials

After you click continue, your next screen will have your material selection and card stock cut settings. For this project, I will cut on the 80lb card stock setting. Use your scroll bar to double check the order of your mats and the order of the cuts on the left of your screen.

Also, use your brayer to secure the card stock to your mats. Position and line up your mat according to the mat guides. Load the mat into your cutting machine. You will know your machine is ready to cut when you see the flashing “c” button. Press that button to start your cut. Once the cut completes, load your second mat, press the flashing “c” button again. Repeat this step until all layers have been cut.

Step 5: Assemble the Leprechaun Candy Dome Free SVG File
