Hey everyone....well judging by the triple digit heat in South Florida every single day now, I'd say we're full blown into Summer here. And what could be more summer than fresh picked strawberries made with the newest dies and thinlits from Sizzix? Well the only difference between these berries and the 'real deal', is these won't spoil any time soon. I absolutely adore these new dies, and how sweet would this be as a centerpiece at your next BBQ, summer pool party, or displayed in your kitchen window? Better yet, fill the little fruits with treats and hand em out! How fun! For a step-by-step tutorial on how I created this project, just click the link below. I hope you enjoy! ;)
and here are a few more close ups...
I added the "15" plaquette to the front of the basket to let 'pickers' know that the berries were 15 cents each.....no, not really, I just loved how it looks with it.
To add a little more visual and textural interest to my basket, I hot glued on a piece of big, chunky jute rope, and for the tops of the strawberries, I added thick green felt, tan felt, quilters batting and brown button "stems".
I adore this basket, and I hope you've enjoyed it too.

I hope I've inspired you to create your own basket, thank you so much for stopping by today! ;)
Have a great week!
