There’s not a sweeter Valentine than this You Feel Like Home Cricut Valentine’s Day Gift Idea. See how easy it is to make with your Cricut Explore Air 2!
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.
I feel like Valentine’s Day is the time you can give a cheesy gift and depending on how the person takes it, you could be serious, or joking and everyone will be okay. That’s how I’m playing off this Cricut Valentine’s Day Gift Idea.
I’m not usually a cheesy person. My husband will tell you that I avoid talking about my feelings at all cost (unless that feeling is annoyance, then I’m ALLLL over it).
But when I saw this cute house boxes in Cricut Design Space, a phrase popped in my head and these “You Feel Like Home” Valentines were born.
If you don’t have a Cricut and want to know more about the Explore Air 2 model, check out my post, Why I LOVE my Cricut Explore Air 2.
What You’ll Need for these Cricut Valentine’s Day Gift Boxes:
- Cricut Explore Air 2 (see why I love it so)
- You Feel Like Home Cricut Project
- Cricut Design Space
- Scoring Stylus
- White Cardstock
- Corrugated Cardboard
- Hot Glue Gun
You Feel Like Home Valentine Instructions
- First, open the You Feel Like Home Cricut Project in Cricut Design Space and click MAKE IT or Customize it to make changes. Please note: I have included the heart fan and the rose. If you only want one, make sure you Customize the project and delete the one you don’t want.
- After you’ve made your changes, the Cricut will prompt you to choose a material. Choose cardstock for the white images and corrugated Cardstock for the others.
- Place the scoring stylus into the A slot of your machine (right next to the spot your blade should be.
- Use the flat Cardstock that is included with the Corrugated Cardstock for all the pink and light red designs. Use the rippled Corrugated Cardstock for the dark red – that will be the roof.
- Load each of those designs onto the mat when prompted.
- After all of your designs are cut and scored, take them off the mat.
- Fold on all of the score lines and make sure the folds are inward (like the image above.
- Take the white card stock and glue it to the INSIDE of the house so it covers all the windows and the writing.
- Next, glue the roof on the top flap of the cut out.
- Glue the flaps together so you create a box. Do this for the bottom piece as well.
- Now, make the heart rosette. This was pretty much impossible to do while taking pictures, but the easiest way I found was to scrunch up one side, then glue it to the back of the heart, then do the other side.
- Repeat step 11 for the smaller part of the rosette.
- For the rose, loosely roll it up from the outside in and leave a spot in the middle. Repeat for the other rose, but make it a little tighter. Glue the smaller rose on the inside of the larger one (This makes it much more full as opposed to only doing one rose).
- Glue those to the front of the box.
- If desired, you can also print and cut the circle card included in the design and place it on the back of the box.
- Get a lightweight treat and place it on the bottom part of the box and place the house inside it. You may tape or glue it down if you need to transport it somewhere.
I really love the way these Cricut Valentine’s Day Gifts turned out. Play around with the colors and decorations you use for this box and feel free to make this your own!
