Hello Everyone, I wanted to share this tutorial with you. If you want to know more about the designer and other services, page kits or classes they may offer please visit their blog, store or web site. Enjoy!

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
  • 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

Jen Martakis created a treat box with coordinating card for Valentine's Day. The dipped strawberry sticker from our We've Got Your Sticker, "Sweet" set is the focus and inspiration for the non-traditional color scheme;
