Die Cut 3D Letters

Great news—I’ve got another fun, 3D craft comin’ at ya! This is one I’ve had in the works for a while now, and I’m super excited to be sharing it with you today. Gather up some cardstock and get those creative juices flowing with my new, die cut 3D letters!

I’m not kidding when I say that I’ve had these templates in the works for quite some time. I came up with the idea to make my own 3D, display-style letters a few months ago, and once I started actually working on the templates, I realized that this was going to be much more time-intensive than I had originally thought.

Making all the tabs, placing all the score lines in the correct locations, and getting the measurements just right (for all 26 letters, mind you) was quite the ordeal. BUT, I pushed through, and, because of that, I’m exceptionally excited to be sharing the finished results of my labor with you!

Putting these letters together is a lot of fun! And you can make them a couple of different ways:

  1. Make a Solid Letter: make two copies of the letter shape itself and attach the side pieces to both.
  2. Make a Hollow Letter: make a single copy of the letter shape and simply attach the side pieces to it.

I went with the second option, as you can tell, because I wanted to fill it in with some pretty silk flowers. Feel free to get creative with what you fill you letter in with: pebbles, succulents, candy, etc. And if you make a solid letter shape, you have a lot of options for decorating it as well: draw or stamp a fun design, add washi tape accents, or wrap the whole thing in twine for a trendy, rustic look.

Something to Note

Like I mentioned, these letters are quite simple to put together, especially if you have a Cricut and are able to make use of the files that include score lines (just be sure to attach them to your shapes before sending them to cut)! But knowing exactly which side pieces to attach where can be a little confusing, so I would definitely recommend using the PDF template as a reference in that regard.

I hope to make a video tutorial in the near future to better show the process of putting one of these letters together, so stay tuned for that.

Also, I’d just like to give a warm welcome to the newest member of our family: Cressida Ailani Thomas! Baby Cressida came into our lives last Friday, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have her here (and I couldn’t be more thrilled to finally have another girl in the family)!

Die Cut 3D Letters

I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other awesome die cut freebies available on my blog!

Enjoy putting these die cut 3D letters to use! How do you plan to use/display these fun letters?

    Thank you so much for generously sharing your designs with us. I made the R yesterday. Turned out well. The curved parts were a bit long, but I just cut off the excess. Everything else was perfect.

    2 Cut the solid outlines and score the dotted lines. The front face of the letter is connected to the sides of the letter. There are additional side strips you’ll need to cut and score. The reverse side of the letter is on its own without tabs or sides and is optional to use. If you display the letters on the wall you don’t need to use the back. If you want to play with them as objects, adding the back will give extra strength.
