Berry Blessings Berry Basket Tutorial

Yesterday I shared a Sweet Strawberry berry basket. Today’s flavor is a blueberry version.

If you missed yesterday’s post all about the Sweet Strawberry basket you can view it HERE. Today I’m focusing on the blueberry basket which holds some delicious blueberry jam.

I used the Berry Blessings Bundle from Sale-A-Bration. This is My Favorite Sale-A-Bration item! You get the Berry Blessings Stamp Set and the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper for FREE with an online order of $100 or more.

I have been creating so many fun projects with this bundle. I love the juicy paper designs and “wishing you the berry best” sentiment I used on the coordinating card.

The gift card is a 3 x 6 piece of Pacific Point scored at 3″. I cut a 2 3/4 Basic White square and stamped the sentiment along the bottom with Pacific Point ink. I added a 2 3/4″ x 2″ piece of the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper and wrapped some navy ribbon (from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack) around and tied a bow. I adhered this layer to the card base. This little gift card can fit in the basket with the jam.

I made a coordinating card for the strawberry version as well.

The dimensions for the strawberry card are the same except I added a 1/2 x 2 3/4 strip of DSP along with a punched flower like the tag on the jar of jam. Are you wondering where I got the twine? It’s actually white and is found in the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack.  Here’s today’s TIP…Use Stampin’ Blends to color the white twine any color you want! I used the Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend to color it to coordinate. I am thrilled Stampin’ Up! brought the twine back.  Now you can make any color you want with some white twine and Stampin’ Blends!

As promised, here’s the details to make the berry basket:

Berry Basket Tutorial

Measurements:

  • Cardstock Base: 3 x 9 and 2 3/4 x 9 – score each at 3 and 6.
  • Cardstock rim: 1 x 9 and 1 x 4 1/4 – score each down the middle at 1/2
  • DSP (Berry Delightful)): cut 2 pieces 3 x 3, cut 2 pieces 2 3/4 x 3

Directions:

  1. Fold and burnish the cardstock pieces.
  2. Layer the 2 3/4 x 9 piece across the middle of the 3 x 9 piece to form a cross. Adhere with Liquid Glue in the center.

  3. Turn over and adhere designer series paper to each panel. *Make sure the pattern is facing the right direction when the sides are pulled up.

  4. Use a bone folder to curl the strips to break up the fibers. Add liquid glue on each side of the score line.

  5. Start in the back and using the smaller strip fold over the back piece and join the two sides together leaving a little gap between.

  6. Use the long strip and start along the side overlapping the back piece and adhere the front and side pieces to form the basket.

    *This basket was made to fit the Stonewall Kitchen jars. You can alter the dimensions for any size jar. The Wild Maine Blueberry Jam from Stonewall Kitchen is the closest to homemade I’ve found!

This gift set is for a friend of mine who loves blueberry jam on her morning bagel! Prior to the pandemic she would come visit often and stay a few days each time. I always had this blueberry jam for her. I really miss her visits and wanted to let her know I’m thinking of her!

Which is your favorite flavor, strawberry or blueberry?

Sweet Strawberry Slider Treat Box Tutorial

Yesterday I shared two versions of a sweet slider treat box for some foil covered chocolate hearts turned in to strawberries.
Stampin' Up! Sweet Strawberry and Berry Delightful handmade treat boxes - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I had several people ask where I found the foil wrapped “strawberries”.  Thanks to the Strawberry Builder Punch the transformation was quick and easy! I stamped the strawberry stem from the Sweet Strawberry Stamp set on Granny Apple Green cardstock with Garden Green Ink. I punched it out and added it to the top of the chocolate heart with Mini Glue Dots. Voila!
Here’s a tip when using the Strawberry Builder Punch (or any builder punch): Cut cardstock in strips to stamp and punch. That way you don’t waste cardstock punching the other pieces each time.
Stampin' Up Strawberry Builder Punch Tip - visit juststampin.com for stamping tips, project inspiration, and more! - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
Today I have all the details to make these slider treat boxes. The box is made the same for both projects.
Stampin' Up! Sweet Strawberry and Berry Delightful handmade treat boxes - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
To make the box: Cut cardstock (Garden Green) 3 x 5 1/2 and score at 3/4″ on all four sides. Cut along the horizontal side up to the score line to form the tabs. Cut notches as shown and add adhesive to the tabs to adhere box together.
Stampin' Up! slider box treat holder - visit juststampin.com for inspiration and complete tutorial - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
*Optional – I added a DSP layer (1 1/4 x 4) inside the bottom of the box.

To make the fold over belly band:

  • Cut cardstock (Garden Green) 7 1/4 x 4 1/8. Score @ 3/4, 2 3/8, 3 1/8, 4 3/4, 5 1/2.
  • With the Layering Circles Dies, cut a 1 1/8 circle from the cardstock (*see photo below).
  • Stamp the strawberry vine in Garden Green Ink.
  • Add a 5/8 x 4 strip of DSP between the score lines below the stamped image.
  • Layer the Circle Dies and cut both at once. Adhere to the circle on top.
  • On the backside of the circle add a 1 1/2 x 2 piece of Window Sheet with glue dots.
  • Adhere a 1 1/2 x 4 piece of DSP along the bottom of the box. Stamp sentiment in Real Red on 3/4 x 2 1/2 piece of Whisper White. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Apply a strong adhesive (Stampin’ Seal or Tear & Tape) to the top of the box. Fold this piece over and adhere below the first score line.
  • Adhere another 1 1/2 x 4 piece of DSP on the inside. Stamp sentiment in Real Red Ink on a scrap of Whisper White and fussy cut out. Adhere to DSP layer.
  • Stamp two strawberry outlines in Poppy Parade ink on Whisper White. Stamp filler image in Poppy Parade stamping off first. Punch with Strawberry Builder Punch. Add stamped stem with glue dot and adhere one beside the sentiment on the inside.
  • Stamp flowers with Flirty Flamingo and punch.  Adhere to stamped vine with Mini Glue Dots. Add Heart Resin Dots to the centers.

  • Slide in the box with candy and wrap Real Red ribbon around the box and tie a bow. Adhere stamped and punched strawberry to ribbon with a Stampin’ Dimensional. *The ribbon will slide on and off the box to open.

    Here’s a look at the open and closed view side by side.

It’s easy to just slide the candy box out from either side of the treat holder.

The only difference between this “fold over” version and the stand up version (below) is the size of the cardstock for the belly band. It has one less score line and it a little taller.
Stampin' Up! Sweet Strawberry and Berry Delightful handmade treat boxes - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
The slider box, flowers, and circle window are made the same.
Here’s the measurements for the belly band and DSP:

Garden Green Cardstock: 7 1/2 x 4 1/8 scored at 3/4, 2 3/8, 4 3/4
Berry Delightful DSP: 5/8 x 4, 1 7/8 x 4

Berry Delightful Strawberry Treats for the Pals Blog Hop

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects featuring “Sale-A-Bration Products.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments. We love hearing from you! At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I really like making little treats and gifts for my friends and family! Delivering treats has been a much needed “get out of the house activity”. I look forward  to driving around town and leaving little surprises in mailboxes. I made two different versions of today’s project. One stands upright and the other folds over to reveal the surprise treat when opened. This little treat can be given any time of year or you can make it to give out for Valentine’s Day… just change the sentiments.

One of my favorite treats is chocolate covered strawberries. (Oh yum!) While this isn’t the real thing, it’s a fun alternative with a much longer shelf life. Both versions have a slide out box which holds 3 chocolate hearts/strawberries.

I made the stand alone version first then decided to tweak it so it would fold over and open like a card. All inclusive! You can add a message on back of the stand up version if you want. Here’s a look at each project.

This version is just 1/4″ shorter and has an extra score line.

I added the little cut out for a sneak peek at the sweet treat!

I used the Berry Blessings Stamp Set and the lovely Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper. This exclusive bundle is FREE with a $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration. It was top on my wish list!!! Here’s a look at the set.

This set coordinates with another stamp bundle in the new Mini Catalog, the Sweet Strawberry Bundle. I love that this bundle includes the Strawberry Builder Punch!

The Sweet Strawberry stamp set is the sweetest stamp set ever! Full of plump strawberries and all-occasion sentiments, the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set is perfect for handmade cards, scrapbook pages, and more. It’s a set you can use year-round—change the colors of the foliage images to match the season, and use the sentiments anytime. This is a Two-Step Stampin’ set; it allows you to layer two or more images to create one final image with extra texture and dimension in the colors you want. This is a Distinktive** stamp set; it has a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step, creating photo-realistic images. Here’s a close up of the realistic looking strawberry!
Stampin' Up! Sweet Strawberry and Berry Delightful handmade treat boxes - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I hadn’t intended to create my own box for today’s project as I was planning to use the new Love You Always Treat Boxes (#154285) found on page 11 in the new Mini Catalog. However, those boxes were much larger than I realized!  While they are great and would be perfect to hold 2 (large) actual chocolate covered strawberries (they are food safe!), it took about 20 of my little “strawberries” to fill the box! I wanted to make several of these treats to give so I opted to make my own box. I’m going to be totally honest here….While I love how these turned out, it took me several attempts (and a few wasted sheets of cardstock) to get the measurements and scores just right for what I wanted!!! That being said, please check back tomorrow and I’ll have the measurements and photo tutorial for you (and possibly some of my “other” versions. LOL).

Which one do you prefer…The stand up or fold over version? I’d love to hear from you. Leave a comment below!
