3D Valentine Candy Cart – Valentine’s Day Cut File

It’s time to kick off the season of love! Today, I have a really fun 3D project to share with you that will make a totally unique gift for that special someone in your life. Because what’s sweeter than candy on Valentine’s Day? How about this 3D Valentine candy cart to hold it.

I mean, it just doesn’t get much sweeter than this, does it? Glitter paper, little hearts, and gem accents all around—this project is just bursting with cuteness!

3D Valentine Candy Cart

Supplies

How to Make It

1. Use your cutting machine or X-ACTO knife, along with my template, to cut out all of the 3D Valentine candy cart pieces.

Note: If you are using the SVG files that includes the score lines, don’t forget to set them as such in Cricut Design Space and attach them to their shapes before sending through your cutting machine. I used a lime green color to mark the score lines, so hopefully that helps! If you’re having trouble with the score lines, check out this video.

 

Assembling the Bottom

2. Take the two bottom pieces and fold along the score lines, attach the tabs to the inside walls to form a rectangular prism (minus the bottom face).

Then, assemble the stand, bottom sign, and wheels.

Attach the stand to the inside of the bottom structure using the tabs. Glue the sign to the front, and attach the wheels on either side.

 

Assembling the Top

3. First, layer your scalloped and oval frame pieces. Attach the Dura-Lar (window) pieces to the inside.

For your middle (in this case, white) section, fold in the edges, and glue the tabs to the inside.

Fold your top section pieces along the score lines, but don’t fully assemble yet.

Create the striped overhang by folding along the score lines, and gluing the tabs to the inside. Attach the striped pieces in an alternating pattern.

Assemble your top sign.

 

4. Assemble all of your top section pieces. Start by attaching your striped overhang piece by utilizing the slits provided. Then, attach the top sign.

Once those are in place, finish assembling the top section of your cart by gluing the tabs provided to the inside walls. Then, insert the bottom tabs into the white, middle piece and glue them down.

Finally, glue your top and bottom pieces together and add your heart/gem decorations!

The fun thing  about this project too, is that it doesn’t just have to be used for Valentine’s Day. Customize the labels however you want, remove the hearts, and you’ve got yourself a candy cart fit for any occasion!
