Strawberry Box

I was lurking on Split Coast today and ran across a "strawberry box" that was done by Lisa Young (blog- Add ink and stamp)  She used some stamping up dies and the big shot to make hers.  Check out her site for directions.  I made a similar looking pattern but made it a SVG and cut it out.  I like the way it ended up.  My flaps were not perfect, but it looked ok.

It is hard to tell in my pictures but the top strawberry part is embossed with swiss dots.  The brown is left plain.  I will do it a little differently next time.  I made a tag for it and it will go to preschool with Karson for the class party.  His teacher will get this one.  We also made butterfly suckers for the class.  It's a real challenge to craft with a 3 year old.  He wanted to eat all the candy, wanted to make the butterfly's fly all over the room and put heart stickers all over each butterfly.  He did like the cuttle bug, but tried to stick his fingers in it and roll the handle.  Uh...NO!!  He went from that to the really sharp scissors I keep for detail work.  We had a little discussion on chopped off fingers and he took some ribbon and was happy to wrap up his new McQueen car.  I wish things were always that easy.  When you get bored just get some ribbon and wrap something up.   Frankly I am too tired to be bored.  We were up at 6 am and went strong until 7pm.  He was talking one minute and fell asleep the next.  Just like I am going to be doing soon.  In my recliner, with my little dogs.  

Happy Crafting!
