Origami Day!


Isn't this the cutest little box? I combined two tutorials for this Strawberry-in-a-box project! The template for the box was created by the owner of the Stamp Shack., Sherry Graves. The template for the strawberry came from Michelle Ueligitone, the artist behind Mushi's Creative Inspirations . It's so awesome because the strawberry fits perfectly inside the box.

Inside the strawberry, I was able to snuggly fit two Hershey's kisses. I stamped the outside of the box with the strawberry stamp from Stampin Up's "Tart and Tangy" set. That was probably the hardest part of this entire project since I had to color the strawberry and leaves repeatedly. It wasn't really "hard." It was just time-consuming. The top of the strawberry was cut from a flower punch. I thought it would be awesome to run the berry through the Cuttlebug, using the Swiss Dots folder. Thanks for stopping by!
