    So adorable!! I have been wanting to make a holiday house since Halloween, and haven’t gotten around to it yet, your Valentine house just couldn’t be cuter!

    What a great idea! I have made houses at Christmas for years and recently started doing Halloween ones. Valentines is a perfect time! Not as busy then!
    Would you happen to know the company that made your house cut-outs? I have been looking ofr those forever but never found any. I have made some out of cardboard that are OK, but I would love the real thing.
