Measure your half baubles and create a circle in Cricut Design Space as a guide to the same size. Now, size your top red layer so your circle fits perfectly inside the wheel without gaps. Once you are happy with the size, discard the circle.

Size all the layers to the exact size of your top red layer, colour the layers so you know which is which and send the layers to cut.

When your project is cut, line up all the layers to check they align correctly. You should have five layers.

Start by attaching the baubles to layer 2 with superglue. Put a fine layer of superglue around the edges of the bauble and hold until secure. You need to position them correctly so the top layer fits over the top and hides the top of the bauble.

Add The Top Layer

Use sticky pads to attach the top layer to give it some depth. Then add the yellow layer to the back with sticky pads.

Next, add the black layer to the black-blue layer with acrylic glue. This will be the layer you position onto the back of the wheels to secure the sweets so you don’t want any gaps.
