In the whimsical realm of Valentine’s Day, there are gnomes with their smiles and cute attire that add to the enchanting day of romance! And Valentine’s Day is often associated, not just with love, but with chocolates and fun, sugary treasures. A fun way to craft this season is to combine the two with this Valentine’s Day Boy Gnome Candy Dome. An opening mechanism at the back also makes it easy to fill and refill this cute crafty treat over and over. Perfect for paper crafting with your Cricut, Silhouette or other cutting machine. Scroll below for this easy cutting steps tutorial and short video assembly. Enjoy and Happy Crafting!

-Materials List

  • I am using my Cricut Maker. You could use your Cricut Explore or another similar cutting machine.
  • 12in x 12in Light Grip Cutting Mat
  • One (1) 8.5in x 11in sheet of card stock in White, Ivory, Blue, Pink, Dark Red, Red
  • One (1) 12in x 12in sheet of card stock in Brown
  • Glue. I am using Art Glitter Glue.
  • Brayer (to secure card stock to the mat)
  • Heart Clear Domes (I’m using these exact ones)
  • Hot Glue Gun with Glue Sticks
  • Candy (It is best to use individually wrapped candy inside the domes in case there is extra hot glue that ends up on the inside.)


Step 1: Download the Valentine Boy Gnome Candy Dome Free SVG Cut 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 Valentine Boy Gnome Candy Dome Free SVG Cut File into Design Space

Upload the SVG file into Cricut Design Space. The SVG file will upload grouped together. You will not need to resize or ungroup this design. It is prepared to cut. It is also prepared to use Heart Clear Domes like these. Once you have uploaded the design onto your software canvas, click Make It in the upper right corner.

Step 3: Check Mat Preview

Once you have selected Make It, a new window will open with your mat preview screen. On this screen you will see that the software has prepared seven (7) mats for the cut. Using your scroll bar to the left, take note of each layer and the order of the layers.

Then after you have noted the layers, ensure that the first mat is selected. If the first mat is not selected the cut order will not match the order of your card stock.

When you are ready to begin your cut, select the Continue button in the lower right corner.

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

After selecting Continue, your next screen will have your material selection menu. For this project, I will use the Medium 80lb Card Stock Cut Setting. Check again the order of the mats, arrangement of the elements and ensure that your card stock order matches the software order. Use your brayer to secure your card stock to your mat. Once you are ready to cut, load your mat into your machine and begin your cut.

Step 5: Assemble the Valentine Boy Gnome Candy Dome Free SVG Cut File

That’s it. All done! You are now ready to assemble the Valentine Boy Gnome Candy Dome Free SVG Cut File. Check out this video of the assembly.
