I didn't know --- so of course I had to figured it out so that I could show my client.
I put together this tutorial for you, after all, it is strawberry season, and strawberry teas and socials are sprouting out all over the place.
As a bonus, I now have a decorative basket to put on my craft table next week.
- Flower Folds Bigz XL die
- 5 Petal Flower punch
- Polka dot embossing folder
- 3/8" ruffled Lucky Limeade taffeta ribbon
- Bone folder
- Tombo glue
- Glue dots
- Designer paper of choice
- Cardstock - calypso coral, or poppy parade for the strawberry, and Lucky Limeade for the top
For each strawberry, punch out 1 (one) 5 petal flower punchie in Lucky Limeade; one flower in either Calypso coral, Poppy Parade, or designer paper in whatever size you wish using the Fun Folds die. I used the smallest for a few strawberries, and then the next size up.
Cut out 2 of the petals from the flower. You are left with 6 petals.
Apply glue to one petal and overlap with the petal on the other side of the gap. You now have a 5 sided strawberry body.
With a bone folder, curl up the ends of the flower petals to form the top of the strawberry.
Do this for each petal.
Forming the Top:
Curl the ends of the 5 Petal punchie using a bone folder
Attach to top of strawberry and hold in place until glue gets tacky.
Tie a piece of 3/8" ruffled Lucky Limeade in a knot and attach it to the top of the strawberry.
Your strawberry is not complete.
Let me know what you think.
