Cricut gingerbread house set up instructions for my paper gingerbread house craft project - set up everything correctly in Cricut Design Space ready to score and cut...
Gingerbread house cut file project for Cricut
These are the set-up instructions for making my paper gingerbread house template - it's a cute 3D papercraft gingerbread house project that can be lit with battery tea lights (no real flames, it's made of paper) so that it looks very cute and festive on those dark winter evenings.
It's lovely for Christmas but I think you could use it all year round if you wanted, too - and make it in all different fun colours!
Let's make this cute papercraft gingerbread house with a Cricut
If you'd like to make the project, there's an introduction to what you'll need over on this page - this page here (the one you're reading now) is where you'll learn how to set up your file in Cricut Design Space - then I'll direct you back over to the original page for folding, gluing, and assembling the gingerbread house.
These set up instructions are particularly designed for Cricut users - but if you're making the gingerbread house, please do look over them, as I think they will help you to work out the process for your own machine.
You can also make the gingerbread house completely by hand if you prefer - using a blunt point to score (like a knitting needle) and a craft knife to cut.
If you choose to cut with your cutting machine but choose to score by hand, please do remember to delete the score lines in your cutting machine program before you send the project to cut.
