It's strawberry season, and who doesn't love red, ripe strawberries? You can share your love of strawberries by making a cute basket filled with life sized strawberry boxes that you can fill with strawberry flavored candy.
I used Fence Box for the basket and Fresh Strawberry Box for the strawberries.
I also used Fairy Bears Garden for the strawberry houses on the tag.
"Hello Love" stack from Crate Paper (strawberries)
"Samantha Rose" from DCWV ( basket)
Cardstock by Coredinations
1 3/8 wide fruit themed ribbon by Offray
tape runner, foam tape and large glue dots
The basket was made 4 inches square from a wood print. The horizontal slats were attached with foam tape to add dimension. The label on the front is 2 3/4 inches in diameter. The strawberry houses are approximately 1 1/2 by 1 3/8 inches. The label is attached with foam tape. I made two, four inch bows and attached them with large glue dots at the base of the handle on each side. I used raffia for straw in the basket.
The strawberries were sized way down so the bottom part was about 1 3/4 inches. The whole strawberry is about 2 inches, not counting the stem. Follow the tutorial, and have patience and take your time. These little boxes are a little tricky to make. I used a combination of tape runner and glue, and paper clips to hold them together while they dried. I made seven little strawberry boxes.
It took a little bit of work, but I'm really pleased how they turned out.
I'd love to hear how you like my strawberry basket. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.
Have a "berry" nice day!
