Strawberry Box


Hello, it's me, Monika. I want to show you today, how to make little Strawberry boxes for many decoration possibilities. I had several requests for these boxes on my blog , that I thought I'd share the instructions with you (even the pattern is not my personal creation).

All you need therefore is:
  • Pattern - please take the first picture and save it on your computer and then print it out OR copy paste the first picture to a word doc where you can adapt the size according to your wishes
  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
Optional:
  • Punches
  • Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
     

Cut out pattern and trace onto background paper


Cut out


If you like, you can use for example Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder for texture


Score on dashed lines and fold

 




Cut out pattern of the green and trace onto background paper or just use a similar punch as I did. Punch holes with ca. 1/8 inch hole punch (or a needle) and glue tab on box to inside

Weave ribbon though holes in box and pull closed, tie a knot. Pull both ends of ribbon through strawberry top and tie a bow

 

You can use the strawberries as a summer decoration or you can use them as gift packagings (with a praline inside for example...) or even for men who want to surprise their sweetheart with a ring or other piece of jewellery...

Strawberries forever...; have fun!

Bye, bye,
Monika

  25. I believe that Steampunk is more than just brass and watchparts. It's finding a way to combine the past and the future in an aesthetic pleasing yet still punkish way. It's living a life that looks old-fashioned, yet speaks to the future. rent in london
