Home Is Where The Heart Is...(and the candy!)

Hello everyone :)  Welcome to my little house..literally. This isn't just any home, it's a Valentine Heart box that holds candy!  Thanks to the amazingly affordable printable stamps and cutting files at The Cutting Cafe, I've assembled the cutting file, Heart Tic Tac Box with the adorable Front Door Shaped Card cutting file.  
The Valentine wreath also comes with the Front Door cutting file and even if you don't have a cutting machine, these shapes are easily cut by hand as well.  The heart sentiment is also included in the Front Door file from The Cutting Cafe.
Here's the backside of the house that includes a heart window in the Heart Tic Tac Box file.  I've added a clear window so the candy won't fall out as well as a Tree Swing from Echo Park in the Silhouette Cutting Studio. The Hanging Lamp Post is from Alaa Studio.
The roof I designed myself by measuring the dimensions of the box opening and then adding 1/4" to each side to allow for a crease, cut and fold lid.  Then folding white cardstock to a point and mounting to lid, I then added shingles.  The fence is a free SVG from Birds Cards.
Here I've added slits into the lid portion so that I could run twine handles up and through to make carrying the little house easy and keep the candy inside!
Here's a little look at the roof dismantled for easy candy filling!!
This week at The Cutting Cafe, the fabulous design team are highlighting incredible Valentine ideas and you won't want to miss them! Remember, you don't need a cutting machine to accomplish this, so please stop by and have a looksie for yourself.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
Hugs n' Happy Crafting...
