Haunted House - Halloween

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time and don't get impatient glueing all the pieces together. I plan to make this house again with a heavy cardstock since some of the pieces seem a little flimsy to me.

Q&A with Grandepuce

AWESOME job... not sure I have the patience, but Cricut is sure expanding their product line in some exciting ways.

Thanks for commenting on my project. On a side note, in case some of you are thinking about buying a Cricut, - I would just like to say that I love the way the Haunted House turned out and I love my little coffin boxes I also made from this cartridge, but I'm not thrilled with my Cricut machine. I purchased it thinking I would be able to make more of these types of 3D projects and Provo Craft just doesn't develop enough cartridges to allow me to use the machine like I thought I would. It was a costly investment, and I somewhat regret haven chosen to purchase the machine. There are other machines out there that would have been a better fit for me (like the Silhouette) - but I'll make do with my Cricut for now and will keep looking for cartridges that allow me to make more projects like this one Im hoping that Provo Craft will step things up a bit since their competitors have so much more to offer when it comes to 3D capabilities. If anyone reads these comments, I would love to know about Cricut cartridges that have fun 3D projects on them. I dont scrapbook which seems to be the main focus of the Provo Craft design elements clearly there is a large market for that type of product and many people are very happy with their Cricut machines just my perspective in case others were looking for feedback on the product.

where can I find a pattern or template for this house. Thank you. This is amazing, and you did a wonderful job on it.

Thanks for your kind comment about my haunted house. I'm not why all the details I posted about this project are no longer visible on the Craftsy website. I used the Happy Hauntings Cricut cartridge. It was a fun project but hit took me much more time than I ever expected it to. If you have a Cricut, I recommend you buy this cartridge. I've made other projects using that cartridge so I really fell I got good use of it. You need to be patient making this house and be sure to follow the directions very carefully - otherwise you might pull some hair out while your working on building everything out. I always get compliments when I put my little house on display - so the hard work pays off. Happy Crafting to you!
