October Afternoon Strawberries

Happy Tuesday!

I am so loving the October Afternoon 'Strawberry Jam' paper. I made this basket of strawberries for a friend of mine that I haven't seen since last September. Inside each strawberry is a small Reese's peanut butter cup. I used a template to create the strawberries and leaves. The basket is cut at 6" x 6" and scored at 2" all around. The stamped strawberry image is from the SU Tart & Tangy set. The large scallop is a Sizzlet die and the smaller scallop is a SU punch.


Here is the basket full of strawberries:



And, this is how I presented it to her. The ribbon is from the $1 bin at Michael's and it is a perfect match to the paper/project.


I'm entering this in the Jugs Challenge #43 which is being sponsored this week by Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs. If you would like to play along too, you have until Thursday, 7/29 @ 9:00 PM EST to link your template creation.
Thanks for stopping by.

What a fun basket. I think the strawberry boxes are especially neat because you would never guess they held a gift.
