The Perfect Strawberry Box for Teacher

When I first saw the paper strawberry boxes, I knew this was going on my To Craft list!  And I am going to enter this in Moxie Fab World's Gift Packaging Challenge.  And I knew how I was going to make the strawberry seeds:  Art Glitter!  I used the Close to My Heart Cricut Artiste Cartridge to cut the boxes at 6".  I used the Art Glitter Metal Ultra Fine Tip and Dries Clear Adhesive to make my seeds.  The glitter is 207 Spring Creek Ultrafine Transparent.

I actually made the basket ages ago for a design team try out (maybe Pink Paisley?) and then did not have time to make enough projects for the application.  So, I pulled it back out and matched the my strawberries and leaves from my paper stash.  The handle has been embossed with a Swiss dot embossing folder from Provocraft.  The heart border is a Fiskars punch.  I tied my boxes closed with a ribbon and filled them with Lindor truffles.  I was running out of room in the basket, so I cut a few extra leaves and just wrapped them on the red truffles.
I can't let this year go by without a special something for my son's teachers.  After Sandyhook and the tornado in Oklahoma, it is important to let her know she is valued.  I do feel it is a bit like Mother's day can we thank them enough?!  Well hopefully, a little homemade gift and some gift cards will help them to know they are valued!
