This week I had 2 challenges that
I combined into one project. Well,
sort of. LOL. Over at Queen of my
Craftroom the DT was challenged
to make a 3D project and the Crazy
About Cricut DT was challenged to
make an Easter treat. So, I decided
to make these cute Strawberries.
I made two types of strawberries.
The ones for the 3D project were
filled with one Hershey kiss. Actually
that is all that will fit. LOL. The other
strawberries I put a sucker inside them.
You can see the sucker stick in the photo
above. The strawberry is a SVG cut that
you can find here:
I ran the strawberries and tops
trough the cuttlebug with the swiss
dots folder. I then chalked them to
bring out the dots. You need to make
a hole on each of the petals of the
strawberry (you will understand when you
see the pattern) and in the center of the
tops. I then used some fluffy yarn and
ran it through all the holes and the tops.
I needed to add something to keep the
knot from slipping through the top hole
so, I added a green button.
The basket was cut from the 2010
Easter cartridge. I cut it out with the
fit to page button. I thought it looked
to flat so, I used my MS score board
and scored it at every 1/4 inch going
both ways. I then used a light brown
chalk to make the lines pop out.
The brown paper filler is actually
a paper lunch sack that I cut with
my paper cutter. I didn't want to
spend $2.00 on a bag of paper filler
so, I figured why not try to make my
own. And I was very happy with how
wonderful it turned out.
