Like this design? Consider leaving a tip.
While designing my Up paper lantern, I had so much fun creating the house! But then was really bummed when I had to scale back the details so much, in order for it to work on such a small piece. Since then, I have been wanting to revisit the iconic, whimsical Up house, and today I’m excited to be doing just that!
Check out the video tutorial:
There are so many layers to this project that it can be a little tedious to put together, but the finished result is just over the top adorable! And the added texture/depth just make it that much more fun.
I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other 3D freebies available on my blog!
Enjoy crafting this super cute Up house project! Be sure to show off your finished product, and tag me in your posts (@designsbymissm).

Oh my goodness! Your detail is what makes this house really pop! I definitely want to get this one done. I love that movie, it is probably my all time favorite. My brain is like the dog’s – when I pop off to another subject I often say “squirrel” to let someone know that my attention has been diverted. Thank you so much for yet another terrific file!

I just saw that you have a new profile picture. My compliment, it is a really nice picture.
And I also want to thank you for all the work you do in creating the cutting files. I do like most of them very, very much. They help me to bring a bit glamor into the life of handicaped persons during this bad corona times, as I cut for each of them the parts and they get it together with a nice letter. So I cut 70 of your flying keys and this will go out this month together with the fairy tail of the golden key, written by the Grimm Brothers.
For X-Mas I prepared already the litle nativity latern for each of them and this will go out with a tea bag, an electric light and some warming words.
I do this on a volonteer basis, so not commercial.
So thanks for all your inspirations and good ideas.

Thanks for noticing my new pic! 😉
How fun! I appreciate you taking the time to share your story with me!! I think we could all use a little more crafting time in our lives right now. And I’m so happy to know that you are putting my designs to such good use to bring joy to others!

Thank you Kathy!
And I totally know what you mean! My brain is always going at least 10 different directions at all times—it’s way too easy to get distracted. The worst is when I’m cleaning the house. I end up getting 15 different things done, but not the chore I started. 😂

Thank you so much for the UP HOUSE – it’s my all-time favorite Disney animation movie – I cry every time I watch it and I know the story by heart… I love the characters and the music, again thank you so much for your creation of the House – have a wonderful day
MandeeSeptember 24, 2020 at 4:54 pm (3 years ago)
I’m so glad you like it!! The movie really is something special. 😊

Hi Mandee, I saw this and knew it would make a great first project for my Cricut.
Phew! Just finished and it looks amazing.
Thank you so much for sharing.
I just need to find a frame for it now.
MandeeOctober 6, 2020 at 10:22 am (3 years ago)
Yay! I’m so happy to hear that!! And great job—this is a pretty ambitious first project (lots of layers). 😀

Thank you so much for sharing your amazing work with us! 🙏 I’m wondering if there are directions for putting this together?
MandeeJanuary 13, 2021 at 10:51 am (2 years ago)
You are very welcome Laurie! I don’t have any instructions right now, but you’re not the first to ask. So, I am hoping to make a tutorial video sometime soon. 🙂

Do you still have this file available? I am unable to get it to open on my computer or my husbands. Would love to make your Up House!
MandeeJune 1, 2022 at 9:56 am (12 months ago)
Hi Vanessa! Yes, this design is still available. Sorry you are having trouble. Check out my FAQ page for detailed downloading instructions and troubleshooting tips!

Was wondering what your cut size dimensions were on the UP house. Does it import in at the size you cut it or does it need to be resized to make it the size in the video? I love this! Thank you so much,
MandeeAugust 2, 2022 at 10:33 am (10 months ago)
Hi there! The house itself is about 4.4″ wide and 5.3″ tall. The balloon bunch is 4.2″ wide and 5″ tall. Everything is sized to fit the house as-is, so if you want to make any adjustments just make sure to scale everything simultaneously. 🙂
TanishaSeptember 12, 2022 at 2:46 pm (9 months ago)
Please show me how did you paste the baloons.
I am using to many
MandeeSeptember 15, 2022 at 9:39 am (9 months ago)
You can use the arrangement in the file as a guide, or arrange them however you’d like. There’s no wrong way to do it. 😊
