Aaaah, Sweet Summery Strawberries


Lisa gave me this fruit basket to work with this month and when I saw it I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I love strawberries and knew I had found this paper strawberry template that I wanted to try out. I cut the strawberries out of red cardstock using the template and the tops from green cardstock. I ran the strawberry shape through my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. I then punched a hole in each spot indicated in the pattern and threaded through the twine and pulled it tight and tied it off. I then added the top and tied a bow. So easy and such a beautiful presentation.  You should check out the blog, there are lots of wonderful projects there.
