All you need is a berry basket (I used the quart berry basket from Sweet!), some ‘strawberries’, ribbon, candy to fill the berries and the printable gift tag.

I made these little strawberry boxes with my Cameo. I downloaded the strawberry box from their website. I resized the berries to fit three on a 12″ X 12″ piece of patterned cardstock. I cut the leaves on a separate piece of green card stock.

Tip: I used a tapestry needle with the ribbon doubled to sew through the top holes on the box. Make sure the ribbon is doubled so you can tie a bow on the top.

Don’t have a Cameo no worries! Fill the basket with some chocolate dipped strawberries or strawberry shaped sugar cookies! Tie on the gift tag and you have a super cute back to school gift for your teacher!

If you have to have a CAMEO be sure to try to win one! I have a giveaway going on right now! There is even a special promotion code- you can use “Skip” at check out to save on the CAMEO machine and BOGO Vinyl.
