We had huge success with our papercut winter scene in a glass dome so creating a new one for Spring seemed like a must-do project. Created by our illustrator Krista, this design of berry plants, mushrooms and grasses with a little mouse eating his berry is actually super simple to achieve with just four sheets of paper. Our spring garden scene is encased in this sweet little glass dome that we found on Amazon. We used 4 shades of green and taupe papers and the designs were cut using our Cricut cutting machine but as always I’ve also added the PDF file for those who plan to cut by hand. Once your designs are cut, simply bring the edges of each paper around to meet and use a spot of glue to secure at the back. Pop them inside one another in size order and your papercut garden scene is done! You will find score lines on the larger leaves and then gently curl the tall dark grasses with your fingers. Feel free to play around with the paper once it’s cut – you can achieve lots of lovely depth and dimension to this scene by gently manipulating various parts with your fingers or the blunt edge of your scissors. Place it in a favorite place in your home or give this cute garden scene as a gorgeous handmade gift for a friend. Enjoy! ~ Lia

I have been eager to try this project and I just bought my first Cricut. This was the perfect project to make to “learn” my new cutting machine!
It is a perfect project for jumping into the Cricut craft world! It is also a great place to start if you have not taken our Cricut Skill Course yet. The workbook is a good reference too. https://liagriffith.com/craft-academy/a-crafters-guide-to-the-cricut-maker/

I HAVE to make this cute spring cutout – but every time I try to download the SVG the pin it button hovers in the same place and it goes to Pinterest. Is there a way around it I’m not seeing?
I have made it a nopin image so you shouldn’t have the trouble going to Pinterest. Also look in your download folder. Happy crafting!!
This is sooo beautiful.
Thank you for sharing this cute project. It looks like I might have to get to work right away.
Love to hear that:-)
I am a subscriber to your email newsletter and I see that you offer SVG access to cuts. Will you tell me how I access them for my Cricut Explore use? Thanks!

I have recently bought your book, lots of tissue and crepe and have been busily cutting flowers, and even assembling some! So far I have a daffodil and a peony, but have just cut out about a dozen poppies. My question is about the CRICUT. I don’t have one so I would like to know which one I should get (in your opinion). Which is the latest and best for flower making and other projects? Thank you so much.
Which book? The Cricut Explore Air is the latest and in my opinion obviously the best since I designed 22 projects exclusively for the one sold at Michaels in the teal color;-) I have a couple of videos and posts on my site explaining why the Cricut Explore is my favorite.
so cute and so very original<3
Thank you so much!!
What a lovely idea! I love the little mouse and the ladybug is a perfect touch. Pinning and sharing this!
Thank you for the love back!
You have done it again! You are such a talent, and I want you to know how your audience appreciates you.
That warms my heart, thank you!
Think might have misspoken about how cutting is not as difficult but will work on it to do this project justice. Thx again
Oh my heavens, this is so adorable, had to print out right away, went into my paper stash to find any greens that might work. I’ll be cutting tonight, find my little glass cloches. So blasted cute. Not quite as hard to cut out as others have been, need to make sure hands are working as they should to do these justice.
Thank you so much for sharing this, love, love it.
Every few days I have to take a peak at what is on your site. So exciting to find new projects to tackle. Luckily had some green papers to use, kept looking at photos to know what shade of green to use.
Found ink-jet vellum on Paper-paper.com so will order a.s.a.p. (when I have some money again, next week, 22nd is payday), yeahoo so can order papers for other projects.
Love projects to cut out as it keeps hands busy at night to keep me out of kitchen. Gained few lbs. over winter so now have to shed them. Amazing what difference just few lbs. makes in how clothes fit, duh. Happy week
Ha ha… I also gained a few pounds over the winter , comes with the season I think:-) Happy cutting!
