Strawberry Mini Box and Card Set

Happy TuesDIE Cottage Cutz Friends!
Melinda here with you on on another sweet TuesDIE. Can you believe it is already August? Whew, time is just flying!!!! Today I am sharing a super cute card and little treat box set I created, featuring dies from the new Strawberries and Bees release
 I used the Strawberry Cottage to create the fun treat box. For the Card I used the Berry Phrases Die set. For the card I also used the Circle Pierced Nesting Die set.

My finished card size is a standard top folding A4 size. The base is white cardstock and then I added a piece of red cardstock. To that, I added a mat of some patterned digital paper I created. I proceeded to cut out the pierced circle in the largest die in white cardstock and the next size down in green cardstock.

I then colored all my strawberries and leaves and stems. I also cut out all the phrases in white cardstock. I then assembled the words and berries onto the green mat.

To Make My Little Box

I started by cutting out a piece of white cardstock to 5.25 x 5.25. I scored it at 1.75 on all four sides. After scoring, I cut out the four corners leaving just enough for glue tabs to assemble the box. See the photo above.

Next I cut out the strawberry cottage two times in plain white cardstock. I lined up the bottom of one and used my ruler to find where up the strawberry the width was 1.25". Once I found that, I cut off the bottom. I did that for two of them. I then went ahead and colored the strawberries with my red marker.

I colored the leaves and stems of the strawberries and adhered them to opposite sides of the box. I also cut out two squares of red cardstock and then the mini strawberry patterned digital paper I created. I cut them out at 1 5/8" and 1 3/8". I adhered them to the sides of the box.

I then cut a strip of the patterned diagonal plaid digital paper. It was approximately .75 x 5.25

I went ahead and assembled the box.

Here you can see I added the strip for a handle. I also added some plaid paper mats to the inside of the box. It finished off the inside and it also helped keep the little handle securely attached to the box. I sandwiched it between the box and the extra mat.

Here's a closer look at the sweet little box. I added some of the adorable flowers, berries and foliage from the die to each side. I also lucked out and found that old-fashioned strawberry candies. I used those for the box.

Here is one last look at my project.
