Cricut Design Space Instructions

Create a new project in Cricut Design Space and then upload the candy holder SVG and add it to your canvas. Decide if you are making the version with the closing mechanism or the perforated back and delete the version you don’t want. You will first need to ungroup the layers to delete this.

There are no modifications needed for these designs. However, if you are using a different size ornament than these ornaments here, then you will have to resize the files. To do this, measure the opening of your ornament and create a circle in Cricut Design Space with the same height and width.

With your elements still grouped together, resize them so the circle cut out is the same size as your circle. Make sure that you resize all the elements, including the closing mechanism together to keep the proportions.

How to Assemble the Candy Holders

Each of the candy holders come with 2 different versions. There is a version with the closing mechanism and another with the perforated back. They both are assembled mostly the same. However, the closing mechanism will take a couple extra steps.

So, first I’ll show you how to assemble the closing mechanism and then how to layer each of the designs.

Assembling the Closing Mechanism

  1. Layer your 3 closing mechanism pieces over the cut out on the back of your candy holder. You will layer them with the round piece closest to your candy holder, then the piece with the pull lever and then the piece with the tabs. Make sure the arrow is pointing down for your pull lever and that the tab opening is where you will pull this down.
  2. Flip the pieces over, keeping them in order and place them on your work surface. Add a small amount of glue to the edge of the tag piece and fold it over to attach to the other side. It’s important to use a small amount of glue as you don’t want any glue seeping in, causing the pieces to get stuck together. The middle lever should move freely inside.
  3. Flip the closing mechanism back around and glue it to the back side of your candy holder, covering the opening.
  4. You should easily be able to pull the lever up and down to open and close your candy holder.

Haunted House Candy Holder

First, line up all of your candy holder pieces and make sure each piece is turned the right way, so they match up perfectly. Then separate your bottom 2 layers from the top 2 layers. Glue the bottom 2 layers together with the green on top of the black. Then glue the top 2 layers together with the black on top of the purple.

You can either glue the ghosts to the front of your candy holder, or glue them behind the purple layer so they are floating behind the window like they are in my candy holders.

Flip the front piece over and place foam dots all around the back. You can also cut strips of foam tape. Place your ornament over the circle opening of your haunted house. If you are making the version with the perforated back, make sure to place your candy inside the dome before placing the top piece on.

Then place your top piece on and press down to attach the foam dots to the bottom layer.

If you are making the version with the closing mechanism, make sure to glue this to the back and then add your candy.

Note: You can also glue these down instead of using the foam dots. But you will also need to glue the ornament down as well. The depth of the foam dots is what keep the ornament in place.

Sugar Skull Candy Holder

First, line up all of your candy holder pieces and make sure each piece is turned the right way, so they match up perfectly. Then separate your bottom 2 layers from the rest of the layers. Glue the bottom 2 layers together with the orange on top of the black. Then glue the rest of the layers together in this order starting from the bottom: pink, purple, green and then white.

If you are making the version with the perforated back, make sure to place your candy inside the dome before placing the top piece on.

Then place your top piece on and press down to attach the foam dots to the bottom layer.

If you are making the version with the closing mechanism, make sure to glue this to the back and then add your candy.
