A Strawberry Treat

 

Sometimes good things come in small packages, and a little treat can go a long way! These little strawberry boxes paired with May Arts ribbon make the perfect gift during the summertime season.

 

Here’s the supplies you will need for a three strawberry treat and tin:

  • 1 sheet of 8.5×11 double sided paper
  • Strawberry Template (I revised the one found here to print three on a page)
  • 4 feet May Arts Burlap String in Ivory (SM09)
  • 18 inches May Arts 5/8 in. Satin Pleated Ribbon in Sage (379-58-66)
  • Green Alcohol or Pigment Ink
  • Cardstock Sticker
  • Tin or basket
  • Natural Easter Grass
  • Scissors
  • 1/8 in. Hole Punch

 

Instructions:

 

  • Print template onto patterned paper, trim and punch holes, ink edges. Fold and adhere tab to create strawberry shape.
  • Thread with Burlap String, starting from the inside of one dome and weave through the remainder of the holes.
  • Stain pleated ribbon with green ink, let dry. Cut 5 inches for each strawberry and fold each piece onto itself twice, adhere with a glue dot.

 

 

  • Fill your strawberry with treats, pull the string taut and tie string over pleated ribbon to close the strawberry.

 

 

  • Arrange the pleated ribbon over the strawberry tops.

 

 

  • Nestle your strawberries in a tin filled with grass that has been wrapped with string. Adhere the remaining piece of ribbon behind cardstock sticker and attach to tin.

    I’m sure Grandma would love to get some “strawberries” especially if they came from you. You did a great job on the tutorial and I like the pleated ribbon.

    I love it! Thanks for telling us where to get the pattern. I don’t have a die cutting or embossing machine, so it really helps.
