Stained Glass Raven – Halloween Cut Files

Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night’s Plutonian shore! Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.” We are continuing the eerie themes of the season with an elegant new design, featuring the iconic bird from Poe’s most popular poem. Gather your supplies, and make your own stained glass raven.

I have been creating “stained glass” bird designs since February, when I lucked into this new technique of printing on vellum. Since then, I’ve created three lovely stained glass bird designs that bring immense joy to my amateur birdwatching soul!

When I was brainstorming Halloween designs, I thought it would be fun to continue with my bird collection. And what better feathered friend to feature than the raven?

Stained Glass Raven

To make this project, all you need is:

Note: if you’re planning on utilizing Cricut’s “print then cut” feature to do this project, make sure to ungroup all fo the layers first; then select everything, besides the “outline” layer, and hit flatten.

Once everything is printed and cut out, all you need to do is attach your vellum layer to your cardstock detail piece with a little hot glue—easy peasy!

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 Halloween freebies available on my blog!

Enjoy putting bringing this stained glass raven project to life. I hope you are having as much fun crafting during this Halloween season as I am!

      Hi Susan,

      It sounds like you may be trying to upload the zip file to your cutting software. You’ll need to unzip it and use the SVG file that is included in the download.

      If you are a Silhouette user, there are a couple other steps that are required. Feel free to check out my FAQ page for more troubleshooting tips!

    Hi Mandee – I’m a bit confused on something – as I’m new to this type of craft – it’s when reading your line “then select everything, besides the “outline” layer, and hit flatten” what is the “outline” layer is it labeled in the pieces or can you tell me which layer it is. Looking forward to making this fabulous bird, I remember reading Poe’s poem The Raven.. Thank you and have a great weekend.

      Oh, by “outline layer” I just mean the dark grey piece that outlines the entire design. If this were a real stained glass piece, it would be the strips of lead in between the glass pieces. 🙂

    Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary, suddenly I came across your website and have spent about 6 hours looking at as many of your designs as I could until my eyes blurred. You are an amazing crafter. I suddenly have the urge to do some paper crafting. I believe your haunted castle could go well with the haunted house.
