Berry Basket with Strawberries

Today, my club members and I made this cute little strawberry basket and it was a big hit!  It was really fun to make using the Berry Basket Bigz Die from the 2015 Occasions Catalog.  We made the basket out of Crumb Cake cardstock and used the Hardwood Background Stamp to make it look like a wooden basket.  We stapled our scallop trim to the basket with the new Stapler from the Occasions Catalog.  The strawberries were made from a pattern I found HERE  using Real Red Cardstock, but for the Garden Green stem we used a die from the Flower Flair Thinlets.  We embossed the strawberries with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  We put a Hershey's kiss inside each strawberry.  We used Baker's Twine to gather the strawberry and stem together.  It is not in the picture, but we added some hand-picked signs inside our baskets from the Hand-Picked Framelit Dies also from the Occasions Catalog.
