Sweet Berry Basket Treats

Thank Hello, Crafty Friends!! Design Team Member, Mitsyana, here again! This time to bring you these adorable Berry Bushel Treat Baskets!

I love sweet treats! But what I love even more are sweet friends. So from time to time. I make these sweet friends sweet treats. Whoa, what a tongue twister! Try to say that 5 times fast!

Supplies Used:

Lori Whitlock’s Berry Basket (here in the Silhouette store)

Patterned Cardstock – DCWV’S Peri & Peach Stack

Little Birdie Crafts’ Renae Classic Flowers

Stamped Sentiment- Stamps of Life – Cake2Stamp

Light Pink Crinkle Ribbon

Xyron Mega Runner

VersaMagic Ink- Night Sky, Pink Petunia

Cellophane Bags

CHOCOLATES!!

Stamp Positioner (Optional)

 For my project, I used this adorable Berry Basket file from Lori Whitlock’s SVG shop.

Berry Basket

I downloaded the file. Then extracted the contents of the zipped file onto my computer. Once unzipped and downloaded I can open it using my electronic cutter software.

In my ecal software, I clicked on the SVG/ Import icon to open/add the file onto my virtual cutting mat.

Once the file is open it’ll look the picture below.

Lori pre-sizes the files so there’s no guess work to how big the file should cut. But if you’re like me you like to resize your boxes because sometimes you don’t want a one sizes fits all deal. Which is totally fine too.

To resize a file make sure you file is set to “Keep Proportions”. This will option will be located in the ‘Portion & Size’ panel on the right.

I set the width to 8.75″. With the “Keep Proportions” box checked it automatically sets the height in proportion to the width.

As always, also changed the color of the pieces. This helps me to remember which pieces I’m going to cut in what paper. I sort them by color so that all pieces being cut out the same paper are grouped together.

I load my mat with my paper choices and cut all the pieces at the same time.

Once all my box pieces were cut, I inked the edges of the scalloped tops with Pink Petunia chalk ink. Then used my Xyron Mega Runner to attach them to the tops of the main panels. It’s easier to attach these pieces while the panels are laying flat.

Then I folded the flap on the crease lines. I used a dollop of glue on the tiny side tab and adhered the two side panels together. Then ran glue along the bottom flaps and attached the bottom rounded square piece.

The berry basket file also comes with the little label you can add to the front. It’s optional whether or not to use it. But it does give it a nice little touch.

I used a stamp from Stephanie Barnard’s Cake2Stamp set that reads ” You’re SO Sweet” onto the label in Night Sky chalk ink. The sentiment fits perfectly onto the label (even when resized). I knew I may have needed to re-stamp my sentiment a few times so I placed my label in a stamp positioning tool and stamped it about 3 times. This helps to ensure that I get exact placement each time.

I placed a bag of chocolates (you can use your fave) and tied it off with crinkle ribbon. Then attached these adorable pre-made paper flowers from Little Birdie Crafts’ Renae Collection.

And here is my finished box…

Here are the 2 different sizes I made standing side by side…

These are absolutely beautiful.

These treats are sure to wow all the sweet people in your life!

Hope you enjoyed today’s project!

Until next time…

Happy Crafting!
