Strawberries and baskets bring to mind picnics!!! I've been wanting to make these strawberries and the mini Magnolia Tilda went perfectly for the tag.
Magnolia Products from Magnolia-licious:
MINI #338 STRAWBERRY YUMMY TILDA
#15 DOOHICKEY POINSETTIA DIES
#21 DOOHICKEY ROMANTIC TAG DIE
#22 DOOHICKEY VINTAGE FLOWERS AND LEAVES DIES
#29 DOOHICKEY SWIRL BUTTERFLY DIE
MINI #338 STRAWBERRY YUMMY TILDA is water colored with Distress Inks. Added white gel and glossy pens for accents. Used a Punch Bunch mini sun punch for the centers of the flowers. The texture on the berries is from the Cuttlebug mesh texture embossing folder. Tied the tag onto the basket with gingham ribbon.
The strawberries are made from a pattern I got from Mo's Blog HERE. Thank you Mo for sharing!!! The #15 DOOHICKEY POINSETTIA DIES worked out nicely for the leaf tops of the strawberries to thread the cord through the hole in the center, so they could be opened. I'm thinking a Lindt Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffle would be perfect in these berry containers!!! MMMmmmmm Strawberries and Chocolate............perfect combination!!!
The basket is one made by trial and error. I'll try to come up with a pattern for it later. Of course I used my trusty Scor-Buddy!!! Actually the Scor-Buddy worked nicely to score the strawberries too! Added a piece of gingham fabric for that final picnic basket look.
#29 DOOHICKEY SWIRL BUTTERFLY DIE and I love the detail in this die and that it has two pieces to make the body separate.
