  1. Getting Started - Scan or download the house and window templates into the ScanNCut and save as individual files. Select the scalloped square from the machine's library, resize to 6cm x 11cm and save. Select the heart design, shrink it to 7mm and save. Use these saved files to cut your shapes from a variety of card to embellish your projects.

  2. Townhouse Trio - 1 View the house template on the layout screen. Cut patterned card to at least 6cm x 13cm and place onto the mat to correspond with a single gable end front section. Cut out the template and trim down to 5cm wide.

    2 Repeat to make two more houses, keeping the door intact on each and saving the window cut-outs. Adhere the houses onto coloured card, 13cm x 16.5cm, and mount onto a landscape card blank, 14cm x 17.5cm.

    3 Use the window cut-outs to fill the apertures, swapping the patterns as you do so. Create doors and windows for each house from different coloured card and fix into place. Secure heart embellishments to finish.

  3. Humble Abode - 1 View the house template on the layout screen. Trim patterned card, 6cm x 13cm, and place on the mat to correspond with a single gable end front section. Cut out the template and trim to 5cm wide.

    2 Cut out the door to a depth of 3cm so that a small threshold is left along the bottom. Glue the house to a rectangle of card and trim around the edges to leave a narrow border. Mount this to the centre of an 8cm x 15cm card blank with foam pads.

    3 Trim corresponding windows and doors from a contrasting colour and glue to the apertures. Add different coloured hearts to the centre of each one to finish.

  4. 3-D Trinkets - 1 Take the house template from our pattern pages and cut from patterned card. Score at 5cm intervals to create four sides and an assembly tab. Avoiding the base, score along the roof and down the side of the door. Crease along the score lines and lay flat.

    2 Using co-ordinated card, cut two doors, two small square windows and 14 rectangular windows. Trim the roof using the scalloped rectangle. Next, choose a contrasting colour of card and cut 18 small hearts.

    3 Whilst the house template remains flat, fix the components to the apertures and doors. Add a small heart to the centre of each window and door. Once the glue has dried, fold the house up and secure into a tube with the assembly tab.

    4 Bend in the flat sections of the roof. Fold the scalloped rectangle in half and adhere over the sections so that there is an equal overlap at both ends.
