This year 2024 is the Chinese New Year of the year of the Dragon and I have created this cute layered Chinese New Year SVG for creating a year of the Dragon Chinese New Year SVG wreath paper cut. This Free Layered year of the Dragon cut file is made up of 5 layers and you can cut all 5 or just the top one. You can use the top layer of the year of the fire Dragon cut file or for a cute t shirt using heat transfer vinyl or cut it for use on a scrapbooking page.
Upload the cut file on your design space and cut on your Silhouette or Cricut machine. With 5 layers the result is a 3 dimensional cut file with added depth.

In this free download you will receive 5 cut files in PNG or SVG file format whichever you prefer. Each cut file can be cut a different colour!
I chose these colours for my Layered Happy Chinese New Year Dragon SVG cut file;
- The first layer is Black
- The second layer was White
- Layer 3 was red
- Layer 4 is yellow
- And orange for the background layer 5
I have given ideas for the colour of each layer but obviously this is a guide only, you can do any colour you like!
If you want to back each piece a different colour you can too! Just cut the top piece number 1 in white and do other pieces by hand. You could also use the background layer and the top layer for a wooden veneer Glowforge template.

How to cut Layered Happy Chinese New Year SVG file the same size
To cut your Chinese New Year of the Dragon SVG wreath you need to make sure all layers are the same size.
You can resize the first one to whatever size you would like and then make sure the others are the same on your cutting machine.
To do this in Silhouette Studio go to the transform panel which looks like bars in different lengths. Click on scale which is the icon that is a line with an arrow at either end.
You Can either resize by 50% smaller or put in your own dimensions.
To specify the dimensions go to the two bottom boxes. Click the lock button on the right to constrain the design dimensions as the image is not the same both sides.
To keep the same dimension but fit the page just put in the width size in to the top box with lock checked. It will keeps the same shape but fit it to your page or the size you would like.
I made mine 11 inches by putting 11 in the top box and pressing return and it fits to a 12×12 cutting mat.
Eveytime you cut a new layer do the same this way all of your layers will fit together.
