Freshly Picked BERRIES Just For You

Welcome to the MFT VIP Hop &Shop.  If you've just happened upon the hop, you can start at the beginning HERE

It's that time of the month again, when customers have the chance to get the newest Who's That Girl set two weeks early on the ONE DAY ONLY sale.  This month's VIP features Who's That Harvest Girl.  You can get your MFT VIP kit HERE.

The WTG set includes an EMPTY basket and several things to fill it with.  I chose strawberries.

To get the texture on the basket, I colored the basket brown, grabbed a piece of scrap grosgrain ribbon, saturated it with some Copic colorless blender refill, and then dabbed it on the basket.

The next part of my project is SO exciting for me.  It is a new MFT Template, designed by ME.  I was SO inspired by the set, that I wanted to make something gifty to go with my card and this is what I dreamed up.  I first designed the strawberry carton, and then created pyramid-shaped strawberries that are sized PERFECTLY for the carton.  4 strawberries fit inside, but I like to make an extra one to lay on top... just for fun.  :)  Because the strawberries are pyramid-shaped they fit in nicely and don't shift once you have all 4 in there.  The BEST part about this template is that it comes in MANY formats, all for one low price.  Included formats are:
  • PDF for traditional print & cut
  • Ai (Adobe Illustrator) and DXF – used by Pazzles, KNK, and Wishblade Machines
  • GSD – for Silhouette
  • SVG - for Cricut with Make the Cut and Sure Cuts A lot
If you'd like to see my step-by-step tutorial using the Make The Cut software, My Cricut Expression, and the template click HERE.

Here is my strawberry carton and strawberries.  I used Who's That Harvest Girl and Banner Day Alphabet to create my label.  I wrapped red Perfect Plaid ribbon around the carton.

The Sunshine Die-namics die is PERFECT for the top of the strawberries.  I cut them out in My Favorite Felt.

I used a polka dot Cuttlebug folder to mimic the seeds of the strawberries.

Here is what it looks like with all 4 packed neatly in the carton.
