Strawberry Lollipop boxes and a free pattern for SCAL!

Good morning! Whew, I was up late last night discovering Facebook and finishing up this valentines project I started with one of my 4 year old girls. It was quite a production, actually, I cut everything with my cricut, I prefolded the strawberries, Maizy glued them, Lila threaded the ribbon through the holes and Jackson wrote the names of the girls classmates on punched out tags! Tip: To make the tags I used Microsoft Word and clicked the “tools” tab and envelopes and labels, I chose Avery standard labels and typed “To a berry Sweeet Valentine from Maizy” in the box and printed it on cardstock then I used my paper shaper tag punch (flipped upside down) to punch out the tags and Jack wrote the recipients name on the back. Easy Peasey. Here they are:

Strawberry lollipop holders, how sweet!

The Template is freely shared around the Internet and is by Sherrie Brickey. Please credit her if you use this;-) You can download her printable template here, or get a version to cut with your Cricut using SCAL software:

Strawberry box 1 SVG (this is the red pard, cut at 5″ wide)

Strawberry box 2 SVG (this is the top, cut at 2″ wide)

Here are my SCUT files laid out for the Expression if you want them:

Strawberry box 1 scut file (8 berries on a 12″ sheet (red))

Strawberry box 2 scut file (30 leaf tops on a 8.5″x11″ sheet (green))

You need both of the SVG files at the very least to use this, grab the scut files if you want to make a bunch and save yourself some work. I would zip up the files but some people have trouble unzipping files so they are all loosey goosey, sorry.

There is a great tutorial on this ladys blog on how to fold these, I just put in a lollipop before I pulled the ribbon closed but the rest is the same. I did this project with my 4-6 year olds, I recommend this project for age 6 and up if you are gong to make a lot of these. Live and learn right! Have a great Sunday, thanks for stopping by and until next time happy crafting!
