I'm so glad you here!
Are you guys ready to hop and get some great
inspiration for those end of the year teacher gifts?
You should have arrived here from the very talented Sarabeth of Chronicles of Sarita.
If you just happened to stumble across the hop today on my blog and would like to start at the beginning, just hop on over and see Joy at Joy's Life.
For my project, I decided to use the Spring Cottage Cricut Cartridge and make a basket filled with strawberries. Each strawberry is filled with some Hersey Hugs. I love summertime and being able to get fresh strawberries. I will take some strawberries over apples any day! haha!
Here is a view from the top:
For my project, I used the Spring Cottage Cricut Cartridge and cut my basket out at 8.5". I inked my basket before I assembled it. After my basket was assembled, I used my Doily Lace border punch to create a little decorative border around the top of the basket with some white card stock and then attached that to the basket using some atg adhesive. I then cut out 6 strawberries, all cut out at 3.25". I filled each strawberry with some Hersey Hugs candies and then tied my leaf onto the strawberry using some Trendy Twine. I then added some bows to the sides of the handles. I stamped my sentiment onto some white card stock in the shape of a rectangle and then used my corner punch to give it the rounded edges. The sentiment then got popped onto the front of the basket with some foam adhesive. Voila!
