Strawberry Tutorial for Big Shots!

Since I had quite a few requests on how the strawberry was made, I decided to post this tutorial. But don't let that hold you back from coming to the "Not Just for the Big Shots" Class, there will be lots more surprises in store for the class!!

First, use the Flower Folds die and cut out a large flower. Then run it through the Big Shot with the Polka Dots Impression Folder.

Then score all four lines between the petals, and crease the lines.

Next, cut off two petals and Snail one of the edge petals.

Then stick the edge petals together to make five remaining petals.

Punch 1/8" holes in the edges.

Weave a piece of 1/4" grosgrain "top to bottom" through four of the petals. Then on the last petal, weave it bottom to top (this will make it easier to tie on the top).

Now tie the top. It will kinda be a little off to one side of the top, but don't worry it will be ok!

Punch out a 5-Petal Flower (as leaves!), sponge edges and use the 1/8" hole punch to make double holes in the center. Then pull ribbon ends through and tie on top.

You can add a dimensional underneath to center the leaves on top if you want.

Aren't they super cute and easy? Have fun making a bunch!!


PS. I originally saw this strawberry idea on splitcoaststampers, but it was all made from hand traced templates (not my favorite way to be creative!). - Woohoo for the Big Shot!!- always making our creative lives a little easier!

Julie, this is so cute! I am sure everyone will have fun.

I love this idea. I have made the strawberries from the template that you cut out, needless to say I didn't make a lot of berries. This will be so much easier.

Thanks for sharing,
