Strawberry Template

I created a template for you to be able make the paper strawberries pictured above. Like I mentioned before, it is much easier if you have two punches: Fancy Flower and 5-Petal Flower (retiring).

Click on the link at the bottom of this post to print out the template and start making your own strawberries! Use the tutorial below to help create them.

 

TUTORIAL

(1)  Print out the template below and cut appropriate pieces from card stock or punch use the Fancy Flower Punch and 5-Petal Punch (retiring). Using a Handheld Punch (1/16″), punch each scallop once centered and close to the edge.

(The Fancy Flower Punch will be the strawberry and the 5-Petal Punch will be the leaves.)

(2)  Using thin thread, weave it through the holes. (The first and last scallop should thread from the inside to the outside. All of the other scallops should thread from the outside to the inside.)

(3)  Pull the thread tight so the scallops meet in the center and tie a knot.

(4)  Punch two holes in the middle of the 5-Petal Punch with the Handheld Punch. Using a thicker thread (suggested: Early Espresso or Lucky Limeade Baker’s Twine, Hemp Twine, or Linen Thread), tie a bow through the holes.

(5)  Adhere the leaves to the top of the thread to finish the strawberry. (You could use Sticky Strip, Glue Dots, or Stampin’ Dimensionals.

 

VARIATIONS

(1)  Use the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine and Embossing Folders to add texture to the strawberry and leaves.

(2)  Use patterned paper for the strawberry and leaves (i.e., Patterns Designer Series Paper) to give interest.

(3)  Use a basket, tin container, or strawberry bucket for display.
